Abstract:

"A moving, authentic exploration of spirituality and the domestic from a prize-winning poet The wry, supple poems in Carrie Fountain's second collection take the form of prayers and meditations chronicling the existential shifts brought on by parenthood, spiritual searching, and the profound, often beguiling experience of being a self, inside a body, with a soul. Fountain's voice is at once deep and loose, enacting the dawning of spiritual insight, but without leaving the daily world, matching the feeling of the "pure holiness in motherhood" with the "thuds the giant dumpsters make behind the strip mall when they're tossed back to the pavement by the trash truck." In these wise, accessible, deeply emotional poems, she captures a contemporary longing for spiritual meaning that's wary of prepackaged wisdom-a longing answered most fully by attending to the hustle and bustle of everyday life"--
