Inspired by the titles of works in William Kelly Fearing's retrospective catalog, these poems are fully engaged with the images themselves. Some poems are mere gestures, others lyrical, still others are open-ended. Arranged in chronological order, the poems offer a narrative on a life-scale--elements of the author's and of Fearing's life sneak onto the surface like bits of paper on a single collage--nevertheless, each poem remains a striking word-picture.
