The first collection of new poems by this brilliant, uncanny poet in ten years
In his first collection of new poems since Unsleeping, Michael Burkard presents an array of verse and prose forms dense with allusion, emotion and sensuality. Drawing on his own strand of the confessional lyric—a peculiar combination of dreams, personal disclosure, and matter-of-fact accounts of daily life—these poems rinse perception and allow one to actually see the world, free of simulation and stimulation, for what it really is.
“He gives us the wisdom of indescribability and the mystery of beauty and wonder.” —Malena Morling
