Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As its title would suggest, Two Haloed Mourners is a work marked by a sometimes amorphous, sometimes definite sense of spirituality, a spirituality immanent to every stray thought and object. Loss and regret also figure prominently here, not as features of pathos, but as rituals which structure both our everyday life and that which refuses to submit to it — much like the typographical rocket — shape of the title poem, which bears an empty space right at its center. The poems in Two Haloed Mourners suggest that this marked void at the core of the mental and spiritual systems we rely on contains the potential to explode our lives-but it is through this explosion that meaningful change occurs. Two Haloed Mourners continues in Mayers' tradition of producing work that is both experimental and deeply moving.
