Ezekiel's wheels a poem and reading ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Poet Shirley Kaufman gives a tour-de-force reading of her new work ... The poem, a contemplation of loss, longing, and the nature of true seeing, was inspired by her experience of losing her sight. Emerging from eye surgery, Kaufman had visions like those of the exiled Biblical prophet Ezekiel. Apocalyptic fires in the sky, wheels within wheels, and a valley of bones are encountered on a journey that leads from destruction towards revelation."
