Preliminary Visions (Paperback)
Preliminary Visions creates moments of being, moments of relation, moments of meaning-making—frequently with a sense of being observed by silent witnesses. The poems relationality blurs the imaginary outlines of the separate self, and provoke a sense of the ecological self.
