It's been said about Lea that “this extraordinary poet finds an elegance and beauty that can be glimpsed throughout his often harsh landscape.” This new collection evidences that skill. Here the natural world coexists with the poet’s boundless intellect. Lea’s keen narrative eye keeps us fully in the present as he reminisces on the past—which Lea unravels, chisels away at in search of a deeper understanding—so vivid it could be our own.
