About this title

Synopsis:

WINNER OF THE 2018 LENORE MARSHALL POETRY PRIZE

At once an extension of and a departure from his previous explorations of family and art, Craig Morgan Teicher’s The Trembling Answers delves boldly into the tangled realms of fatherhood, marriage, and poetry. Dealing with the day-to-day of family life including the alert anxiety and remarkable beauty of caring for a child with severe cerebral palsy these personal narratives brightly illuminate the relationship that exists between poetry and a life fiercely lived.

Video Baby Monitor

A watched
pot never boils, so perhaps

a son on a screen never
dies. Like the eyes

of a painting this image
follows wherever we move.

Surveillance is love, love
is every moment the last.

Barely moving picture, memory
of now, sleep, be still, be

safe. Night is long, life short.
I cover you with my eyes.
