Hiding in the World
Eidolon Editions

"One of the open souls of poetry is swirled into these poems, and it is not so hidden. In fact, it is open-eyed and open-hearted. This gathering is like a retrospective extending from the unclosed shapes of the childhood poems to the shimmering of Hedgerows. These words move with delicacy at the edge of consciousness."

Michael McClure, author of Mule Kick Blues and Last Poems, among many others
