Description
These layered, braided narratives combine images of landscape and nature, childhood memories and family history, evoked paintings and performances. Nathaniel Bellows's verse is intimate yet inviting, dark but hopeful: "I could not saw the fallen tree not all / of it had fallen because somehow each spring, / the rotted half still mysteriously bloomed."
