Book description
In a long-form poetry that tirelessly makes its case for its own heritage, Practice on Mountains documents a striving lover through eight weeks of various literatures, reflections, and desires. The poems and translations in this book value experience—the lived poem. The metaphysic of the literary love affair leads to its beautiful, chaotic, thoughtful pile of lyrical musings. Wallace Stevens writes, “it is not the reason / That makes us happy or unhappy. The bird sings.” H.D., Thoreau, Li Po, Pound, classic country hymns, Glenn Gould, and the poet’s friends are called on, among many others, in the reckless appropriations that provide for such a poetry.
