Illustrated. 8vo, illustrated green and grey trade paperback. Foreword by Harry K. Thurston. "This is modern poetry: its eye always open for the telling image, ear cocked to an internal music, and tongue ready to taste the tartness of irony .'Thought,' the poet likens to 'neuronic commotion.' These poems, however, are not only thoughtful in an intellectual sense but in a compassionate one as well.[...] Peggy's poems delve into the human condition and reach out to the animate world around us. In all, there is praise for the passing moment and a catching at it with the gossamer mesh of imagination." - from Thurston's foreword.Arranged in three sections: Seeing Our Future Burn; New York Suite; Small Hearts Beating Deep in the Night in Central Park; Halifax - Dartmouth Suite: Dim Time and History on a Garrison Clock.Poems include "Down by Tufts Co ve", "A Policy of Drift", "Eyes of the Unemployed", "The Trouble with Dusting", "To the Auctioneer", "Autumn Afternoon, Inwood park", "Bus Ride, new York", "Lament of a Reluctant Coney Island Business Man", "High-rise Mondrian", and many others.
