Anti-nostalgic and mutagenerative, productive of thought-experience even while centered on finalities--the limitations of human purview--these poems make sound and image about image and sound at the auratic edges of individualist glamour, in a country field. Their sensuous wit and emotional availability work against and with their flinty grit.
