Chameleon Moon includes poems of love, loss, awakening, and peacemaking. The first section, "Smoke and Mirrors," are among the poet's most personal. Though many are about the loss of loved ones, they also speak of how the dead go on living, always present in our lives. The second section, "Dawn in the Glass House," illustrates a growing awareness of oneself and one's place in the world. The speakers in these poems stumble forward, sometimes with a kind of blind faith, through bad relationships, confusion, and illogic in search of solid ground and self-understanding. It comes. In "Afternoon Rain," "A woman holds back the truth of her life as long as she's able, then spills everything, learns that she's always been insatiable." The final section, "Amends," contains poems of reconciliation and acceptance. They are about perseverance and of finding peace and comfort in a world that often cannot give us the answers we seek. In the end, a "life settles into a pattern, knowledge into the bone."

Review:

Chameleon Moon . . . haunts the reader with poems dark and lovely. Skillful displays of craft abound; powerful metaphors, evocative sensory images, subtle rhythms, and a wide range of sonic effects greet the reader on every page. While I admire the polish of the poems, it is Clark's wit, intelligence, and sympathetic look at human relationships that I find most compelling. . . . From the not-always-sweetly nostalgic poems, to the witty meditations on language, to domestic moments between husband and wife, to the nocturnes and beyond, Clark's collection offers the reader a bounty of troubling, tender, and intelligent pleasures. It's a book to savor, to read and reread.
