Pallbearers Envying the One Who Rides

(1999)
A collection of poems by

 
 
In Pallbearers Envying the One Who Rides, Stephen Dobyns's tenth book of poetry, we see the world through the melancholic eyes of Heart - blood-pumping organ, lover, poet, and skeptical philosopher of the everyday. Dividing the Heart poems is the long "Oh, Immobility, Death's Vast Associate," a jazzy disquisition on human isolation and inaction in the midst of a planet full of people brooding over similar concerns. With the characteristic black humor, maniacal imagination, and straightforward language that rollercoasters in tone and is mythic in its preoccupations, Stephen Dobyns has written a cycle of medieval morality poems for a new dark age.
