Michael Spring's fourth book of poetry. According to Jared Smith, "Michael Spring's poems are deeply centered within something greater than himself; something that through a nonlinear awareness of, he can become part of-an entering into that which is wild, blue, and indistinct in its outlines. Michael Spring is of the alchemists." According to Absinthe Poetry Review, "Michael Spring is a poet with a rich inner life. Whoever he is in this world, he is also someone who works with the transformative energies of the imagination. His poetry is totemic, introspective, and written with a soulful music that comes predominantly from the natural world. His work invites us to look further than knowledge can reach."
