Résumé :
Many of the lively poems in this collection map the temporal location of elderhood -- the frustrating, miraculous senescence of a body and mind self-aware with a whole lived life. Davison creates with words the space for an idea to "breathe" in the mind of the reader -- words written with one eye on death's inevitable finale.

Résumé :

Many of the lively poems in this collection map the temporal location of elderhood -- the frustrating, miraculous senescence of a body and mind self-aware with a whole lived life. Davison creates with words the space for an idea to "breathe" in the mind of the reader -- words written with one eye on death's inevitable finale.

This is a poetry deeply concerned with the word as a physical product of mind, mouth and air. The lucid phrasing and rhythms linger. Davison urges us to commit these poems to memory.
