Publisher Comments:

K. A. Haysa debut collection opens with an invitation to the apocalypse, an act of American bravado that soon gives way to fear of disaster, dread of violence, and grief for the dead. As the bookas alilies and fowlsaaseedlings and swifts, thrushes and pitch pinesafeed and grow, they become figures for human struggle. The speaker of these poems longs for God, for a mind that outlasts the body, and for a way to live with acceptance in a world that is chaotic and uncertain. Dear Apocalypse, the reader finds in the closing sections, does not dare the world to end so much as it asks it to stay, and comes ato love / this waking life, a even with its terrors, even in the dark.
