Day One

You slipped through me,
not by me.
How could I have known
I would fall through these waters
into the country of us?

“A poem is often a balancing act between beauty and truth-telling, between elegance and plain-spokenness. Mary Morris’ poems manage to do both. There’s an austerity to Morris’ poetic speech that is part of their painstaking honesty. She is as meticulous when invoking spiritual mysteries as when she describes the difficulties of human relationship, or contemporary political realities. Morris is a poet in full possession of her craft. These poems manage to be at once humble and celebratory, forceful and beautifully-made. This is a big-hearted, honest, and often gorgeous book.”

—Tony Hoagland, author of Application for Release from the Dream
