Summary: Exploring literature, cultures, and surroundings-both physical and social-the poems in this collection are firmly attached to the author's memories. With appearances by various other literary fellows, in person, dream, or conversation-including Curnow, Kawharu, Sargeson, Creeley, Mansfield, and Wordsworth-this book also features warmly translated versions of poems by Montale, Vita, and Jaccottet alongside glimpses of fantails and elegies for friends. Urging its readers to stay alert and pay attention to each moment, these poems likewise consider the acceptance of silence.
