Time, memory, love and death weave through this intricate and mesmerizing collection of poetry. In this book, Robert Moore has created a museum of stories, people and ideas “some real, some imagined “that captivate the reader. From Joan of Arc, to Rapunzel, to his father, Moore draws ideas and images out of the darkness, making them new and strange, using them to create a rich, shadowy tapestry of verse.
