Fascinated by serrations of light, parodies of shadow, and all other shades in the color spectrum, this poetry collection mixes the logical with the magical, the brutal with the beautiful, the real with the divine. Whether baring the beaten flesh of a 1951 boxing match, witnessing the luminous shirts along a country lane, experiencing the surreal sight of bizarre urban attire, or symbolizing a bat skeleton and the scales of a dying fish, each stylistic device cloaks the human experience with suits of light. Refusing to shy away from the disturbing and violent—such as a bagged fox, a landscape decimated by atomic aftershock, or a sweet aria sung to the accompaniment of artillery fire—this collection offsets every dark with a point of light. Containing a number of sequences, this volume includes a response to Francis Kilvert's 19th-century Victorian diary, a reading of the life of 10 contemporary paintings, the result of a Cessna flight over Wales, and a series of letters to a master architect.
