Winner of the 2009 Fence Modern Poets Series selected by Martin Corless-Smith. When do "hermit" and "maudit" not rhyme? When you're a fellow traveler in Macgregor Card's global community of canny songsters. These poems are inexhaustibly sophisticated, a songbook of meditations on hospitality, fidelity, friendship, regret and the lyric. Here the song drives the engine and finds brilliant solutions.
