By David Sanders

The poems of Compass and Clock take their proposal from the intersection of the flora and fauna and the human, exploring the landscapes during which these intersections happen. these landscapes variety from David Sanders’s local midwestern geographical region to the caves of Lascaux and an enchanted lake the place relics of misplaced lives are washed ashore. but, the genuine resource of the poems’ energy is Sanders’s awareness to the ignored or misinterpret moments, these instances while the act fails, and the perceived clashes with the actual.

Here, the pleasing pairing of attractiveness and vulnerability invitations the reader to travel these uncanny landscapes from which one returns irrevocably changed?—?refreshed, yet wistful. In a overview of his previous limited-edition paintings, Time in Transit, the Hudson Review referred to as David Sanders “a poet to watch.” With the Swallow Press ebook of Compass and Clock, we have now the belief of that promise.
