 About the Book 

Poetry. And the disjunction is simply the way / we search for new images, writes Andrew Scheling in one of these 108 stanzas. The elements joined and disjoined on the surface are taken from natural history, linguistics, and explorations in NorthMorePoetry. And the disjunction is simply the way / we search for new images, writes Andrew Scheling in one of these 108 stanzas. The elements joined and disjoined on the surface are taken from natural history, linguistics, and explorations in North American poetry. Having studied for thirty years the languages and poetry of old Asia, Schelling sets out to read the landscapes, the flora and fauna, of the Southern Rocky Mountains with comparable attention to grammar and glottal stops. At the core of these poems is an encounter with Arapaho, an Algonkian language--and a whiff of the postmodern archaic.
