I Sleep in the Arms of Your Eyes is a reflection on love, freely given and loss fully lived. These poems are a contemplation on family life, and on the navigation through attachment, devotion and attempts at connection. They convey in brave simplicity of grounded language a sense of self where it belongs: “nose-touching-close,” “sustained and articulate.”
Somewhere in the / knee deep wheat grass / of Emery the writing / soul of a man walks / with fingertips weaving / through beads of grain.
