Poetry. "Robert Haight's strong and vital poems follow the current and flow of its lives into the very heart of the American landscape. They record the narrows and the hesitations, the continuance and the possibilities of water moving—and it is here that we find ourselves, swimming in the current. Surely, Haight must carry the river in his veins, for his language is the river's, his pace is the river's and, above all, his never-failing vision is that of the river. These poems speak truths; I know I'll want to return to them again and again."—Judith Minty
