In Incense Drifting to the Horizon, a collection of new poems, Minnesota writer Kathryn Oakley holds up a perceptive, vivid, and sometimes humorous mirror to the joys and sorrows, beauty and awkwardness of our humanity. The poems are divided among themes of daily living, reflections on stories from the larger world, mixed experiences of love, and a new life centered “up north.”
