Choir of the Wells is a tetralogy of new books that cohere as an exploration of the mind-body enigma.
Light, we know, is an invisible thing.
The beam that falls through the theaters
of a childhood-- we trust it’s there
thanks only to the dust that floats inside it,
and the screen, of course, the stuff that takes
the dark of light and makes of it a story.
