Flying Out with the Wounded
This collection of poems by Anne Caston is a striking representation of humanity in this century. Caston explores the human mind and body, delving into the places where we are often most afraid to go. These poems consider the nature of death, suffering, brutality, friendship, love and longing, and our relationship to each. There is a rich physicality to these poems: gardens and tumors bloom here, silence and telling are wedded to each other, children are lost or found, there are books and wall maps, geese and poachers, aprons and lynchings. These are stark and moving poems.
