rushes from the river disappointment

rushes from the river disappointment traverses city, country, and fantasy using nature as artery through the emotional landscape. As they wrestle to come to terms with the effects of uncertainty and grief on hope and belief, these diverse field notes are interspersed with the fabulous: a polar bear and owl engage in flirtation, a time traveller appears on a lake, an erotic scene takes place on a train, and we confront “people capable of eating popcorn at the movie of your agony.”

“Through these stunning poems, roberts ‘effortlessly holds up the universe.’ A gorgeous collection.” – Kelli Russell Agodon, author of Hourglass Museum
