Falling Body

(2009)
A collection of poems by

 
 
The poems in Falling Body, David Cavanagh's second collection, cover ground with quirkiness, precision, and grace. They move the way a life moves-in and out of personal and public territory, past and present perspectives, inner and outer worlds. They chart inevitable falls and celebrate (sometimes with wry humor, sometimes with muted joy) getting up again. The poems touch down lightly on large topics and move on, nervous of becoming trapped in easy certainties. They love the complexities while yearning for simplicity. David Cavanagh is a native of Montreal with Irish ancestry and dual Canadian/American citizenship. He lives a mingled existence in Burlington, Vermont, and is an associate dean at Johnson State College. ""Deftly written poetry that many a fan will cherish."" The Midwest Book Review
