• The fifth of ten notebooks, drafted between April 2006 and June 2007. Some of the material has appeared previously in poetry collections I have published since 2006, but I have gone back to the original drafts to rethink and reconfigure what appears here. While particular places are referenced in the text of some of the poems in this volume, only a date of composition is explicitly indicated. This notebook lives in Chicago and Texas and in between, meaning especially Oklahoma and Missouri with side trips to Arkansas and New Mexico.
