Likenesses explores the frontiers of metaphor and the power of repetition. The poems are at times at times skeptical, at times prayer-like, at times compulsive. They are populated by constantly shifting forms: cars become teenagers, leaves become "fall colored powder," a thing breaks "into being." Where, the poems seem to ask, among all the evolutions of the world do we.
