Cole's poems echo outward in the sparest of language, like a smooth stone causing concentric ripples on the surface of water. From elemental rock to wire to fence to apartheid, from the sun and stars to "the children and the/ women who were/ trying to shield them." Personal. Global. Political. Musical. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0975299360, Paperback)

This book of new poems by a modern master of the found and formulated, and an important translator, is divided into three sequences: "Pluto's Disgrace," "In Our Own Backyard," and "Collective Memory." Music controls the tone--"Here from the tap the heart beats"--as everyday life takes place under a political specter. The universe is taken as greater frame, allowing a human place. In the second section, prose intervenes, then back in the third to verbal play lightening the script. As the poet puts it: lessness. Personal, global, universal: all three shift and interlock in repeating cadences in these poems. Their lock on reality provides consolation for these times.
