(1998)
A collection of poems by

 
 
Poetry. Three sections of ten poems each, which revel in the gorgeous possibilities of language even as they acknowledge the impossibility of language to contain the things it describes: "But there will always be/storms & gray//that settle on their shoulders blurred as sparrows//before they fly away. Seasons/and the names for them will change." (from "A is for Almost") "Kasischke's world...is a world in which grace and horror, beauty and carnage, tragedy and hilarity commingle."-Harvard Review. Kasischke is the author of two previous collections of poems, Wild Brides and Housekeeping in a Dream, and the novel Suspicious River. She has been the recipient of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, and currently teaches at Washtenaw Community College in Michigan.
