Kinetic poems of dying and living from the author of Biogeography.

Road Scatter (as in tire-sprayed gravel) is an examination of breakage and survival, compelled by the decline and death of the poet’s mother but engaged, too, by global encounters with the Iraq war, a rabid dog in Africa, and an at-large South American former dictator, for example. Though a book of mourning, it is also one of living, “rising from grief, returning light in all directions.” --Jane Hirshfield

Review:

...Sandra Meek's devastating new book of poetry, aches with a sense of loss that is not only personal (the collection is dedicated to her mother), but historical and global. This collection illuminates the fragility of our constructions--lives, buildings, societies--and their vulnerability to illness, folly, and the ravages of the natural world. ... startling collection.
