Synopsis

A collection of unforgettable poems, 'Where Horizons Go' is as compelling as it is technically stunning. The book bridges the sometimes vast distances between the personal and the impersonal, the transitory and the permanent, the imagined and the real, the internal and the external, the self and the other. The language here is always clear, always controlled without sacrificing sincerity or honesty. Read this book again and again and be rewarded every time.

Excerpt

“If you ask me,” said the snake, “this couple’s doomed: they started naked, not a thing to need, a thing to wonder at, since orders boomed over the speaker. Every day they weed a little, see what’s ripe and pluck it off, eat this, no don’t eat that. Now I’m not blind: I see her fidget with her hair and cough that nervous cough; she’s bored out of her mind. I see him gawk at birds and flap in vain; then his blank eyes cloud over with the sky and circle his estate, so green, so plain. She’s ripe to risk herself; they need to die; unbanished, he’s an ornament, a brute. We’re neighbors; I’ll go visiting, with fruit.”
