This is a book of the simple life made vivid with color, intelligence, and imagination so surprising that, it turns out, the life we thought simple is abundant beyond measure.
Alan Basting is author of What the Barns Breathe.

"The world Alan Basting sees (which is the world) is dark and fatal, but his superb poems make light, and reveal what might be the coherence we hope for, and how we join him. We know, and then forget, and need to learn again. I say come to the poems, one by one, and find their way. The light will dazzle."
-Howard McCord
