    how the gods pour tea First Paperback Lynn Davies 9780864924230 $19.95 POETRY Sep 24, 2013
    This new collection by Lynn Davies, her first in eight years, abounds in departures: words and communities die, trout-lilies and passengers vanish, even the King and Queen of Fairies disappear. In poem after poem, Davies's powerful imagination blends observation and fancy, passion and playfulness, producing strikingly fresh metaphors. Squirrels paddle away on twig-rafts; giant horses take to the sky. Some poems give simple weight to the details of everyday life; others evoke an imaginative world inhabited by giant beavers, elf-thugs, and the gr... + Read More

Ranging from a literate vernacular to high diction, the language of Bit Parts for Fools hints at a new hunger driving the poet’s q... + Read More
