This is Ken Norris' ninth book of poetry which takes as its epi-graph a quote from Henry Miller: "When the house is tom down the bed is left standing: the cosmosexual altar". The poems in this collection engage that condition. Whirlwinds of lovers. Voices out of the whirlwind. The bed at the centre of the storm.
