Poetry. Winner of the 2008 Philip Levine Prize for Poetry. "Shane Seely turns the earth over and over to find 'the rind of the world.' Two boys discover a bullet, a couple fight 'through a mouth of toothpaste,' a father gives his son a rifle. These are poems of filial complexity, meditations on death's cruelty and kindness, poems of amplitude and depth which ask us to live fully in 'the length of morning'"--Dorianne Laux, judge of the 2008 Philip Levine Prize in Poetry.
