Joe Bolton

"That magic hour in the movies
when even what doesn’t happen
is narrative enough, and the sea,
reduced to a source of beautiful longing,
darkens, and makes a minor music."

Susan O’Dell Underwood

"Isn’t this dinosaur weather?
The cicadas are ratchet-jawing, a serenade ugly in its devotion
to beauty. They are finding one another. They are singing
hymns to their brief infinity, monotone on and on
into the universe, the sound of praising the universe."

PRECARIOUS

Peterson’s fifth collection, with its shorter, often sonnet-sized work, makes a fine introduction to his style, in which minute observations unfold into good advice about an intricate, interdependent, imperiled natural world.” ~ Publisher’s Weekly

of the hayloft ladder, my cousin

spreads his thin arms wide
and falls like a sparrow hawk

through invisible time. . . .”

hunkered down.
Earth has borrowed the moon’s pallor,
certain, pure . . .”
