Publisher's Summary

"To be honest, I was a bit shocked. Yes, I see a different side of you. Many times I laughed out loud; in between I was suddenly silent, too, and my heart was tied by the words you wrote." - Marian Orton

I wrote these poems during the five-day cycle of the "harvest moon," September 2016. I walked out into my front yard during its waxing phase, as I often do to view the full moon, which always comes up on that side of my house, because I find it so invigoratingly beautiful. It was such a clear night, the moon so big and bright, that it just kind of hijacked my head, which it held captive for the duration. I wrote this series of poems day by day, long, languorous, loopy poems, as you will see when you get to them, like nothing I've ever written before. Many times I laughed out loud; in between I was suddenly silent, too, and my heart was tied by the words I wrote.

Paul Kameen is the author of Writing/Teaching and Re-reading Poets (scholarly books); This Fall (personal essays); several collections of poems (Harvest Moon, In the Dark, and Li Po-ems); and numerous essays.
