Synopses & Reviews
American Book Award winning poet Aaron A. Abeyta finds beauty in the unexpected, whether it's the melody of a raindrop striking a tin can or the complicated and intensely personal definitions of poetry itself. As Orion Falls, a spectacular and intricate narrative array of poems, exposes and magnifies the constellations of everyday life-with its memory, pain, and joy. Weaving nostalgia, mythology, and wrenching passion, Abeyta crafts language with exceptional care, and his achievement is a collection that speaks the truths we know from our own experience. An accessible entry into a self-contained world of the purest loves imaginable, As Orion Falls is a feast that feeds our secret dreams.
