"What can be better than poems teeming with understory, of yearning, empathy, and grief? The rarity of this book is its willingness to enact mystery without grasping after resolution or uncorking wisdom, to hold space for the unsayable. These poems demonstrate the urgency of seeing--the motherland, the mother--and the numinous presence of what is felt but can't be seen. The final sequence is a masterful rendering of mother loss, an arc of unmitigated sublimity." --Diane Seuss, author of frank: sonnets
