About this title


ABOUT THE BOOK You are invited to a pas de deux in this imperfect world with Diane Smith's debut collection of poetry. America is under siege, Smith tells us, as pixels vanish and emerge. She opens with a poem from the Civil War—conflict an ongoing theme in this step for two. TWILIGHT AT GETTYSBURG What shock electrifies this empty sky? Dense thickets with burned leaves—cannon balls and soldiers strewn across the graves at Cemetery Ridge. The moon slowly rises, lighting this hot July night across Plum Run. Moonbeams hug toughened bark of honey locust trees. Smoke drifts and sags. Thousands of soldiers lay on the field, no distinction to their ranks, deaf to the battle cries, the bombs, the screams. Blood-soaked grass scents the air. Rifles rest by their sides. The Napoleon, now unmanned, aims at empty space. —Diane Smith
