Taking its title from graffiti on a now landmark boulder in Newbury, New Hampshire, the book observes, in exhilarating language, that despite the failings and inscrutability of human nature, the possibility for transcendence abounds. From love to war, from history to pop culture, from the mundane to the famous, from the ineffable workings of society to the plaintive yearnings of the individual soul, poem after poem, Ayers delivers the craft of a mature poet.
