Lush and allusive, tuned to a background in translating Nepal Bhasa poetry, RUNNING OUT OF WORDS FOR AFTERWARDS gives voice to cycles of desire, loss, and renewal. Like the many rivers that flow through this book, David Hargreaves' poems, in various turns, can be urgent, expansive, unpredictable, or calm, conveying the reader through landscapes both mystical and mundane, through illusions of selfhood, and the struggles of language to accept its own limitations.
