More > & flowers, buildings, the darting presence of birds, or the ubiquitous litter & detritus of city streets. But it’s an internal exploration as well, as the poet’s roving eye, always seeking, never content, looks for hope & peace & perhaps some measure of redemption. In a series of poems loosely based on the Chinese lüshi & jueju forms, the book takes us on a journey through two seasons—a series of poems, or one poem with its many fragmentary manifestations. There are moments of clarity & moments of confusion; moments of joy & moments of despair. The moon moves through its cycles; the leaves change color & fall. Nothing is resolved—everything is resolved.< Less
