Poetry. Greenberg invites readers into a dark, pastoral landscape in which tenacity is currency. The physical anchors of these poems—ghosts, children, the body in various stages of injury or disease—combine to form a world in which the reader, like these characters, is neither lost nor found, and always searching.
