To a God of Dribble Glasses and Loneliness
Jay Leeming's third book follows the visionary powers of poetry into a sprawling landscape of Sufi mystics, death-row comedians, Neanderthal sculptors and rock stars in crisis howling, grieving and dreaming this world into being. These are poems lived in the presence of birth and death, odes of sorrow and celebration fit to remind us of the radical beauty in which we dwell.
"One of the most original poetic voices of his generation."
"To a God of Dribble Glasses and Loneliness awakens us to the strangeness and mystery of the world...these poems are cornucopias spilling over with images of unforgettable beauty."
—Ann Fisher-Wirth, author of The Bones of Winter Birds
