Blurbs about the book:
Tradition of Oral History
There is a story my sister tells
on some restless summer nights
when she has come to visit
and the children have been put to bed
and she and I have remained—
slouched on the porch, staring out
over the cow pasture, sliding off
into that hour of night when the air
has that creamy smell of cedars
and all the years we have spent
watching them surge up and out

because, by the time
we met, I was old enough
to have learned to lie
We finished. The room came to rest
around us. She dressed in moonlight.
The next day we met. Coupled
in her mother’s car. Stumbled
through the mechanics of it. Lips.
