I am paraphrasing two poets when I say I am doing nothing and that is poetry. Listen. The poems in Run for the Shadows draw you into the jagged edges and crevices of lived experience. They speak of attachment with an intensity that belies the poet’s capacity for restraint, and spill over with dread even as they draw the veil over pain. While responding to the ecological and political crises of the moment, they imagine an arc of time that encompasses both the deep past and the far future.Written over a period of seven years, this new collection of poems by one of our most charismatic poets is an invitation into a deeply personal yet expansive world.
