Great Regulars: Here are two poems from the book,

reproduced with the permission of his [Henri Cole's] publisher, Farrar, Straus & Giroux. "Shrike" first appeared in The New Yorker, and exemplifies the way that Cole uses an exact and terrifying image as a vessel for memories of pain. The next, "Myself Departing," is a poem of physical exposure, and emotion borne with dignity and resilience.
