Abstract: This collection of poetry seeks an accord between the past and everyday life. Several of the poems deal with particular sorrows and I have found that poetry transforms sorrow in the same manner language transforms what is real into what is perceived. I hope there is some joy in this collection. Were I to draw a figure of death, I would place it behind the wheel of a candy apple 57 Chevy. Poetry must set forth from "somewhere." These poems originate from the unspeakable desires of everyday life.
