Home » Because – Editor’s Pick

Because is a book that reminds us why it matters that we are here, living our complicated lives. These subtle and surprising poems are deeply engaged with the present, reminding us of how we are enmeshed with the particularities of existence: wisteria and neighbors, children breaking sticks, rats and trash, and so many riddles we can never know the answers to. Musing and wondering, grieving and praising, these poems dwell in both the inner and outer worlds, in the mysteries of our daily actions and our dreaming selves.
