The 19th poetry title by the former Griffin Poetry Prize winner and one of the country’s most revered living poets, Sequence offers a haunting world of intense observation. Built as one long poem, [A. F.] Moritz’s spare passages walk the line between sleep and wakefulness, day and night, earth and the stars, and juxtapose the observant child with the older poet trying to pinpoint his place in the universe.
From the book:
“Only the extreme end of day pleases anymore,
when the caravan imposes its halt
after sundown in the music of gradually subsiding purple
and the first stars appear mute over the flat round.”
