Poetry. Subtly incorporating myth, history, landscape, pop culture, and aesthetics as possible solaces within the labyrinth of grief, THE TANGLED LINE explores the fragile circumstances of family and fatherhood. These poems remind us that when we try to possess, literally or figuratively, materially or metaphorically, legally or lyrically, we create the possibility of violence to ourselves, others, and the world—often injuring that which we hold most dear. "Father-son. Bodies. Seeing. Conventions of sentences. Grace. Distrust. Guilt. Souped-up engines. Sorrow. Love. Process. Hunger. Elk hair. Celebrities. Topeka. Arkansas. Tennessee. Spokane. A myth. The new you. A chicken-necked Daedalus. A pale cavefish. Red berries. If you're looking for a poet who can 'describe Breton to the Enlightenment,' look no further"—Gillian Conoley.
