Poetry. The poems in RIDDLE, FISH HOOK, THORN, KEY invite readers to encounter what doesn't stay still. The longing here is not only to see things—the bones of a whale, a forgotten handkerchief, muddy horses in a field—but to inhabit them, to enter the well of other lungs, to journey into the throat of another land. These poems search for ways to belong in the world. As they do so, the fleeting and uncertain become illuminated, and intimate.
