“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.”
