Overview

As the title poem suggests, delays arrive exclusively on a personal level. (Not that some collective surface hasn't been scratched; it has, but that surface is relatively inconsequential.) We must follow such scars; it's who we are. This volume begins and ends just beyond the delays, far enough outside our souls to allow us to discover new ways to return.

Bishop describes a few of his own reappearances, hopeful that the unusable track he leaves behind might remind readers of a few of their own delays and how their own expectations have been transfigured. Hidden among the ordinary images, Bishop carefully places a pair of eyes that, if engaged, assure readers a most unusual journey.
