Poetry. "This beautifully observed, penetrating collection of tanka slips itself into and under awareness. A narrative holding equally an illness's navigation and the abiding, altering beauty of existence, each five-line poem is complete in itself, a world presented in full. Yet in reading these pages through, their accumulation leads to a shifted landscape of being. As life itself does."—Jane Hirshfield
