Similarity, relationship, and comparison thread this new collection by Anaheim Poet Laureate and Prize Americana-winning author, Grant Hier. From the tightly woven, stand-alone sonic knots of the opening poems, to the mirrored diptych full-poem pairings, on through to the final section of aphorisms and analogies, which are at once humorous and profound. The companion to Hier's previous collection, The Difference Between, is thoughtful, well-wrought poetry that simultaneously connects the unexpected and reveals to us places of resonance.
