Poetry. "As SLOW MOUNTAIN TRAIN winds across the borders of nations and of dream and waking, we discover that 'our silences are really full of noise,' and we become part of a conversation that is uncommon by virtue of its commonality: 'words acknowledged / make and save at once / what's worthiest / ourselves in them.' Thrillingly intelligent, humorous, sorrowful, wry, yearning, and always reaching toward a cherished interlocutor, Roger Greenwald makes the invisible visible and beautifully vocalizes the unsaid."—Aliki Barnstone
