Synopsis

Part map, part travelogue, part chronicle, part autobiography, Never-Ending Birds explores a variety of landscapes from Midwestern villages to the boroughs of big cities. Steeped in story-divorce, loss, raising a child, uncovering old worlds and new loves-these poems are gracefully lived in, lived through, with mystery and beauty.



from "Never-Ending Birds":

That's us pointing to the clouds. Those are clouds

of birds, now we see, one whole cloud of birds.

There we are, pointing out the car windows.

October. Gray-blue-white olio of birds.

Never-ending birds, you called the first time-

years we say it, the three of us, any

two of us, one of those just endearments.

Apt clarities. Kiss on the lips of hope.
