Each poem in this radiantly plainspoken collection offers subtle and penetrating observations that swell to a rich tapestry of ordinary life, beheld from a stance of grace and buoyancy. Starting with intimations of desire in childhood, these poems travel through ordinary domestic scenes to the blessing of a maturity in which the narrator, still embracing desire and wild promise, thrives in the midst of lifes darker gifts. This collection is truly a joy to read. It puts to shame those of us who walk through our days with the din of loneliness, ignoring lifes many invitations for bliss.
