Overview

Beginning with a canary and ending with a warning from Eurydice, Under-Worldly gives poetic voice to the subterranean. This hybrid poetry collection examines what lies beneath, moving from water pipes in Michigan, to Colorado boomtown mines or to the emotional minefields of hair metal bands. Environmental concerns and historical re-visioning take shape in sharp phrases and expansions of tradition poetic form. Literal and figurative underworlds abound in schools, beneath a car's hood and from Neil Armstrong's perspective in space. Nancy Drew and Baby Doe Tabor explore new depths. When the river runs backwards at New Madrid or nightswimming tugs bodies down, these poems articulate the architecture of bones beneath the world's flesh.
