“In Guinness on the Quay, Peabody urges the questions of what makes the contemporary landscape, the totems, myths, meccas that we share. This is a mature voice singing life observed, life lived as a poem forever becoming embodied, in lines that reveal the deeply personal. Writing the moment, mining a timeless effect, the poet shows how the U.S. is a heart that longs for distillation, as Yeats’ writing desk meets the radioactive spiders of Three Mile Island. Joy and humor join all our fears in Peabody’s dazzling new collection.” —Afaa M. Weaver 尉雅風
