Poetry. "Wayne Miller's ONLY THE SENSES SLEEP celbrates the transforming power of attentino and distraction, as the perceived dissolves into memory and reverie. 'Moving away from myself//and further into myself' in a poetry both elegant and completely natural, 'the mind keeps trying to arrive/at the other side of here,' leaving it refreshed and exhilirated by the knowledge that 'retreat//is also a kind of arrival.'"—John Koethe.
Wayne Miller was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, studied at Oberlin College, and after working briefly in the Manhattan District Attorney's Office, received an MFA from the University of Houston.
