Across space and time, crossing continents and decades, in this volume the poet uses memory and the minutiae of daily life to unravel the mysteries of love and death. He examines belief and superstition, on occasion prays, and delights in the sight of the familiar and the strange, the young and the old. In his journey the poet is lost but holds up the map to everywhere and everyone.


“I don’t usually enjoy long poems, but I found myself wishing there had been space for 10,000 of Barrett’s marvelous thoughts.”
–Patrick Connors, League of Canadian Poets
