In poems both intimate and public, meditative and musical, Dings seeks to enrich the present by evoking both the future and the past. Urgent and carefully formed, his poems seek and awareness and expression that are responsible--intellectually and emotionally--to the most private and most communal moments of human experience.

"There is nothing notational or offhand about Dings's poems. Each is an exploration, intense and riveting." --Mark Strand

"A real find. . . . He's one of those rare poets who finds expression in our ineffable, everyday lives." --San Diego Union-Tribune

"Dings reaches for nothing less than the great themes of loss and death and the attempt to still discover a life, some light that allows us to live beyond our immediate circumstances. Dings is a true craftsman and knows absolutely an intelligent music must prevail, and it does, wonderfully, in this book."

—Christopher Buckley
