LIGHT WIND LIGHT LIGHT (Paperback)
LIGHT WIND LIGHT LIGHT engages a childhood among rivers, takes steps into the river-like world at large, and then turns to (hopes for) metamorphosis. Transitions are marked with primitive signs, such as the visual dimensions of number—a concern that keeps arising as the poems ask how abstractions differ from matter. Light and transparency figure in every poem in this book, while the book as a whole deals with memory as fluid, transitory, illuminating. An illusion.
