This book is a collection of poems that offers a dedicated look into the mind and spirit of humanity, into a varied world of ideas and experience past and present that touches the life of author Esther Kamkar. Drawing on the open-ended theme of the book's title, of such things. and her own collage of layers pictured on the cover, the poet shares her vivid understandings in a wide range of poems collected over the past five years and presented through a radiant and determined voice very much her own. Kamkar (in collaboration with her poet friend and book designer Robert Perry) organized the assortment of poems into seven consciously uneven but distinct sections, so that the design of the book from the cover through the interior pages reflects the poetry the reader encounters there.
