Eastern Mountain Time (Carnegie Mellon Poetry)by Joyce Peseroff
Synopses & Reviews
What endures the encroachments of time, history, nature and mortality? Peseroff speculates with a clear-headed, wry look at the world's catalogues and almanacs of largesse — lilies, Jerry Garcia, men in fog, animal joy — as well as its sorrow. In startling, original poems full of leaps and digressions that reveal the mind in action, readers will encounter life through a person made raw by observation, a mind processing loss and mortality in a petal, a poet alert to how syntax and language can reconfigure the experience of grief.
