Poetry. Night Crane Press has published Beausoleil's ninth book of poetry. This is a collection of poems set in an urban working-class landscape. "waiting to turn the palm/to make it empty/just that favor/the car/its prominent flesh/the identifiable homeland". The poems are as concrete and elusive as the light that filters through a Chinese lattice, a screen that lets in light but obscures the interior life and movement within. "who besides the deities/are concealed in language". Regarding, Against The Brief Heavens, Beausoleil's last collection of poetry, Carl Rakosi wrote, "...a collection of extraordinarily compact, concise, stark poems, with great clarity of line." Distributed through Doorjamb Press. Japanese hand binding.
