Poetry. THE STILL POSITION chronicles the last days of life of the poet's difficult but cherished mother. Set in upstate New York among deer and hawks under a stone-scarred mountain, these poems reveal the death of the body and the heart's passage through loss and grief, anger and confusion, forgiveness and devotion. These poems are very up-close, chiseled, and go against sentimentality by staying with details and particulars. Although the end is known from the beginning, readers will be affected by such an honest and suspenseful journey.
