Jason Heroux's fourth collection of poems takes him to the laboratory. The book is marked by several long serial poems that take his work further than ever before. Working in free verse, more formal structures and the prose poem, Heroux's image-rich verse explores loss, death, angst -- but with wit, an empathetic gentleness, and magic.
