A first collection of poems from the winner of the Cuffer Prize for short fiction Our Gleaming Bones Unrobed is a haunting debut, a poetry collection thematically focused on discovering the structure (the figurative bones) beneath the appearance (or skin) of a situation. This poetry is at once memento mori -- a reminder and celebration of our mortality -- and a lyrical exploration of the spirituality of the mundane, the possibility for revelation found in the commonplace. The universe's heart is a ruined house. Written on the door is this: you cannot do a thing that has not already been done. - from "On the Occasion of a Book Burning"
