WHERE INCHES SEEM MILES

 

These poems are stories told by an old man, a young widow, an Irish maid, a rattlesnake, a keeper of bullets and an heir to a ruined family fortune.  They take place in the segregated south, in medieval England, near the Suez before the Great War and in a modern Midtown hotel.  Often ironic, sometimes sad, they consider homes left, lovers surrendered, and parents lost.  In voices that are casual, lyric, funny or intense, they touch on war, death and sex in clear, dramatic language.
