Small WorldeBook - 2012
At times angry and despairing, these poems evoke hospital conditions and social attitudes toward the ill, but focus on the intricate reality of living day to day and trying to bring memory to bear on the future. In this collection, "The Patient" suffers a brain hemorrhage, causing the poet to carefully examine the days before and after this heartbreaking event. A multilayered compilation, it builds a rich portrait of love under almost intolerable pressure.
