Synopsis:

"Readers will find that this work carries the pulse of their darkest sorrows, in the breath of their humanity. Highly recommended."—Library Journal

"Intimate and hypnotic."—Ploughshares

"Levin has the skilled ear, magnificent tongue, and fierce mind of the truly prophetic."—Rain Taxi

"Levin's work is phenomenological; it details how it feels to be an embodied consciousness making its way through the world."—Boston Review

"Death is the new and unshakeable lens through which I see," writes Dana Levin about her third book, in which she confronts mortality and loss in subjects ranging from Tibetan Buddhist burial practices to Aztec human sacrifice. Shaped by dreams and "the worms and the gods," these poems are a profound investigation of our inescapable fate. As Louise Glück has said: "Levin's animating fury goes back deeper into our linguistic and philosophic history: to Blake's tiger, to the iron judgments of the Old Testament."

They took you in an ambulance even though you were dead,

they took you

and my sister said

Why are you saving her if she is dead?

     shey shey—

Curve of sky a crescent blade.

Vultures wheeling
     on thermal parapets, shunyata,

     void that flays—

Yak butter,
     barley flour and tea: you watch him

     make the paste.
