The poems in Each Perfected Name are about many things: seeing the sacred in the ordinary, recalling the beloved fragility we all carry with us, and wondering what we should do in the world with the stories and symbols that shape us. These meditative, conversational, yet carefully crafted poem are about Odysseus, Aristotle, and the G-20 Summit; planets, quarks, and stars; urban landscapes, "the problem of the soul," and so much more.
