About this title

Synopsis:

The horizon of these poems is a lifeline, truly. Here I find rescue everywhere and every way I turn. Henderson and Pollard have fronted catastrophe with loving eyes. Small wonder, then, that they find miracles. Donald Revell In this sequence, the collaboration between word and reader, writer and responder, life and death, Derek and Derek, is an invitation, a dance card in which the dancer and the danced become not a duet but a crowd of possibility-"the shining market of us." Eleni Sikelianos Across a speeding surface, horizons and stutters, typewriters and streetlamps, phrases and fragments couple and uncouple, creating a train of language impossibly shaped as an expanding web of returns and responses, and the coupling goes on, gets faster and faster; little lights begin to blink; those are in your head, and it's the text that's doing it -that and the dead, who also come back again and again. The Dereks manage to capture all this while keeping it hurtling forward. Vertiginous-and very moving. Cole Swensen
