A strange mix, a miscellany as the subtitle says. Some pieces written during & about the George W. Bush presidency; the Allegrezza translations; prose works that investigate the landscape where... More > the writing takes place; poems that don't fit elsewhere. All put together to try & hold up a night sky, to give it faint stars & distant constellations.
