With graceful lines swooping like a bird in flight, Claudia Emerson’s newest collection explores the harsh realities of aging and the restrictions of the human body, in addition to the loneliness, fear, and anger that may accompany us as we are living.

Keenly observed and beautifully executed, these poems move from the grim façade that hides beauty-prosthetic eyes- to the pretty scene that conceals violence-a rural retreat. Emerson also considers once common things which can be fast becoming obsolete: cursive writing, telephone booths, barbers.

At once hopeful and cognizant of the entire the explanation why humans would possibly despair, these poems echo with remarkable insight into the actual nature of life.
