Heaven Beneath: Poems

Heaven Beneath: Poems

by Anne Marie Macari


Available for Pre-Order. This item will be available on December 15, 2020


From Anne Marie Macari, author of Red Deer, comes a staggering collection of loss and love in the age of Anthropocene—heartbreaking poems rooted in the primordial, the elemental, and the communal.

Walking through the landscape of loss, the poems in Heaven Beneath explore the illness of a parent and the parallel ongoing degradation and destruction of the planet and its creatures. Beneath “paved-over space,” in the deep currents of a river, or the shadows of great trees, there’s another world, there’s a heaven, unknowable, in the muck, alive and with us, not distant or abstract. Using music as an essential force, as the conductor, and meditating on the deep lyric, Anne Marie Macari's poem summon mystery, energy, and a longing to enter, to touch, our heaven beneath, to walk with loss, to give in to the whole, the complete.
