Allan Cooper writes with a simplicity and grace that belie the intensity of his attentiveness. Animated by the tensions residing between the grief of loss and the joy of presence, his poems open the minute movements of the domestic and natural worlds to view, coaxing the extraordinary out from the ordinary.
