This book is a record, not so much of making life one’s own as of allowing it to emerge. Evoking the journey of a long life, Geraldine Zetzel’s accomplished poems express a potent, often playful imagination that reaches through strictures of propriety and convention to the bedrock of connection. This is mature work in a world where there is great thirst for it.

The Shoshone runs muddy and loud
from the year’s late ice-melt.
