“Linda Haltmaier’s poems capture moments in time, fleeting and beautiful as a hummingbird’s flight. At the same time, a comic flare emerges when she invites an old friend whose belly has gone ‘slack like a Buddha in repose’ to ‘come, let’s laugh til our hearts split open.’ Blending the comic with the tragic, Haltmaier explores the ‘wreckage’ of a relationship with the same clear eye as her poems about family life, its joys and sorrows, and about a natural world in which she assumes the power to “roll up the sky,” transporting it and her reader to a new and better place.”

—Claire Keyes, author of What Diamonds Can Do
