Alison Swan

 

continued

For many of her walks in the dunes Swan was accompanied by her dog, Keweenaw, and a good deal of this little collection is a lament for that companion. When she stops to remember one scene, she writes, "that Kewee and I were there together to see it / feels like some sort of miracle." And readers who have followed Swan this far through her poems also can become convinced that these small moments--in the right place, the place where we live--can become luminous.

Alison Swan reads from Dog Heart at Nicola's Books on Friday, February 17.    (end of article)
