The Luskville Reductions records a year in the life of a small Quebec town and the marriage that disintegrates there. While a book about loss, it is also a book about the state of becoming that coexists with change, the imbalance that for a time makes everything lucid, all the details adding up to much more than only an "us." The visible goes beyond mere facts in these poems, transformed into the deeply seen -- and therefore sacred.

The problem with daylilies
is the usual contemporary twaddle: how is it
we know anything
now that you're gone.

What do you mean
now that you're gone?
What do you mean
daylilies?
