Poetry. "To seek the company of words is to cultivate the silence in which language speaks. It is as much a matter of listening as of writing, and of a willingness to think with words as they exist. In their wry compassion for a world 'that needs no introduction' and their fierce humility in the face of its 'barbed wire hang-ups, 'these poems compel and reward our attention"--Ted Pearson.
