Epigraph
When the moment came he brushed her hand away. There was light
through an open door, soft yellow surge that broke
at the foot of the bed. Someone laughed outside in the street.

How was it possible: black bacilli tumbling in the blood?
His bones outweighed him. Suddenly he could remember everything,
the house of women, the apostle window, the weather in the wood.
Dedication
To Harrison Birtwistle

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0571316077, Hardcover)

The poems in David Harsent's new collection, whether single poems, dramatic sequences, or poems that 'belong to one another', share a dark territory and a sometimes haunting, sometimes steely, lyrical tone. Throughout the book - in the stark biography of 'Songs from the Same Earth', the troubling fractured narrative of 'A Dream Book', the harrowing lines of connection in four poems each titled 'Fire', or the cheek-by-jowl shudder of 'Sang the Rat' - Harsent writes, as always, with passion and a sureness of ltouch.
