“Cleopatra Mathis … brandishes the gifts of a talented poet who has hit her stride.”—The New York Times Book Review

“As long as we have Mathis’ clarity of imagination, the intricacy and breadth of her engagement with the world and the depth of her meeting of others, we’ll have the warmth to help us deal with our own centers of cold.”—A.R. Ammons

Strong, unsentimentally emotional sixth collection set on the frigid shores of Provincetown.
