    E.G. Cunningham

    A desolate majesty informs these poems, which read like some of the oldest songs. How to reconcile the emptiness of the blank, solitary present with the haunted terror and misericordia of the future and the past? What might nature know better about such reconciliations? If these poems are dark they are like the sky over Death Valley, studded with ancient and still-holding wonders, allowing no artifice, re-forming themselves relative to their own internal motion.

    Peter is a master of elegy and I love his words dearly. Hearing these poems read aloud made me cry, and reading them again now I am still crying.

    An exceptional collection covering loss and grief as textured realities of the everyday. Each poem can be read precisely and broadly. Dark, yes, but revealing with each page turned.
