Lightest shelf wear to the book and jacket. The Vermont poet's eleventh book of poetry, published in celebration of her 84th birthday. From Publisher's Weekly:"Her 11th, with its unprepossessing title, is well worth discovering, consistent and forthright in its explorations of the quotidian and the dream-life it can produce. Writing of "this sly shadow of too much knowing," the poet takes us through "cities scattered like a deal of cards/...As I run on miraculous hooves/ from the wooden pen." First printing, full number line. Most items ship with free delivery confirmation, electronic tracking and jacket protectors (generally over $10.00) if applicable. Clean recycled packing material will be used when possible.
