Publisher Comments:

Poetry. "Impossible perhaps—he thinks—to read the world, to sing it, to offer up its names. Yet, as Christopher Sindt reminds us in this probing and often startling collection, the world, that world, is all that is the case, with its Dantescan windings and sudden, Ovidian transformations. His encounters with it here, at once lyric and elegiac, tacitly argue that this 'temporary world' might just be enough."—Michael Palmer

"Tracing the intertidal circuits of story and understory, of body and soul, of land and sea, Christopher Sindt's sensitive and intelligent poetry offers 'a foundation for becoming.' Acutely attentive to the ways ecology and its theology sing in harmony, THE BODIES strikes chords—voices and forms laid among and alongside each other. Here, the reader enters into the ways we all 'must travel the land of / duplicate forms, hip bone of rabbit chasing after hip bone of fox.' Sindt guides us through this terrain, from false clarity to a truer knowledge full of 'seams and breaches.' This is tide, song, transfiguring body: a poetry to be embraced with 'both arms please.'"—Elizabeth Robinson
