40 years in the making, a unique marriage of modern American poetry and the ancient art of ink painting


“The joy of being in these pages is a rare note in current American poetry.” Jane Hirshfield, Chancellor, Academy of American Poets


“An elegance of tone, a compression and richness of language that is rare in American poetry. I usually try to stay clear of words such as ‘beautiful’ when describing books, but this time I’m happy to make an exception.”  – David Bottoms, Walt Whitman Award winner
