“Sometimes there aren’t enough other worlds,” Katie Eberhart writes, and so we pay close attention to this one. We dry-scrub silver lichens off old barn walls in the Matanuska Valley of Alaska. We consider in the last decades of our lives a granite tor’s gradual crumbling. We watch for trees blazed long ago, the trail marked ten feet high. Sensual and meditative, Katie Eberhart’s poems light our way.”
—Peggy Shumaker, author of Toucan Nest

In “Soliloquy And Near-Soliloquy,” the husband speaks alone on the porch . . .” [read the entire review on Rattle.com]
