The poems are markers or crumbs left along the paths of domestic life, arrivals and partings, and in in the wake of war. The five sections of the book focus loosely on places, encounters, and events where moments of seeing occurredwhere the frame shifted, a new light fell, and some reminder was given that even the hardest things occur in the context where love is possible and present. The poet writes with anguish over the warmaking in Iraq, which has involved all Americans in a project whose human cost is staggering.
