A poet descended from the New York School, Dobby Gibson’s award-winning debut is witty and expansive, driven by precise, interconnected abstractions. Gibson writes about desire in American life, observing, Amid the middleness, / there’s the feeling / that anything can be seen / and nothing reached,” seeking his truths in misunderstandings and the relentless Midwestern winter.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:


From No Wake

The snowflakes taxi. The full moon coolly
punctuates its own fantastic, howls the ohs

of its own vowels. The firemen stop for directions.
The children light cigarettes and wish

they had invented their own feelings.
The explorers who discovered only oceans

we cannot name. In the distant universe
there are things older than the light

that illuminates the firmament, a place where every
thought is a kind of unmarked car,

where women wait inside the revolving door
with a spritz of perfume and a secret

for some newer side of ourselves
we will recognize only in what little it will admit.
