An award-winning poet explores language and love in a powerful, diverse collection of poetry. Amy Gertsler's latest collection engages the reader with a sensibility that is by turns extravagant, wistful, erudite, playful, and profound. Love lies in wait in these poems, populated with such as deserters from circuses, recipes, and the scent of geraniums. Gerstler twines language into sublime confections of elegance and silliness, seeking support between progress and pathology.
