Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0983823847, Paperback)

Poetry. Limited Edition. In seven numbered sections, this is a long poem about love, but atypically, philosophy, ghosts, dreams, even Ruskin enter the scene and, like multiple doors in a long corridor, some of these elements advance the theme and some initially interrupt only to extend and enrich the flow of speech, ideas, and imagination into a world that only Lawrence Raab could make believable and enjoyable.

When I was a boy I tried to believe in heaven,
to accept the process of punishment
and reward, which led to the idea that nothing
would ever truly be lost. I wasn t successful.

Limited to 340 copies letterpress printed from handset Kennerley metal types onto 80 lb. Neenah's recycled Environment Felt text, sewn by hand, bound with a wraparound cover of Wassau Royal Fiber Thyme. This is Adastra's 96th title since 1979.
