A new collection, her fourteenth, from award-winning poet Dara Barrois/Dixon
These poems appeal to our desire to put into words what seems impossible to put into words. In other words, these poems in some way or another honor and pay homage to poetry itself for being available to us when we need it to do what only it can do in the way it does. In addition, EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE MYSTICAL EXPERIENCES FOR ASTRONAUTS coaxes joy out of the mundane and gratitude out of loss.
