Read full description of the books:



I confess that I was a student of Robert Kelly's, so my reading of his work tends to be a mixture of acute appreciation and exasperation. Exasperation because any poet who writes as much as RK does will surely develop habitual gestures. Yet, this collection reminded me once again that there are few if any poets forging ahead as Robert does to attend to the urgency and mystery of spirit and body. His humor, intelligence and searchingness mean that even the weakest poems here have elements that one can profitably return to many times. (And one must always check the author photo at the back of a Kelly book to watch the ongoing evolution of his remarkable eyebrows.)

from "Casida of Milk":

An animal is anything that makes us think

I am an animal that not so long ago was you
Curvature of light around a broken vase is whole

The answer was looking for me while I hid in the woods
The answer trickled down my back while you mopped my brow
