In her third collection of poetry, Karen Enns ranges over endings of many kinds: cultural, ecological, and personal. But the poems are also replete with affirmations of love, of music and language, and of our rootedness in place and history. Enns describes our predicament with startling and surreal precision, yet also with tenderness and compassion. Her work is unusually wise in the ways of innocence as well as grief.
"An affirmation of poetry's unique domain."
“Personal and remote, cool and exacting, mysteriously exciting, like a top skier these poems cut their own tracks.” Gary Snyder, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Turtle Island
