"God crouches at night over a single pistachio. / The vastness of the Wind River Range in Wyoming / Has no more grandeur than the waist of a child." Compact and profound, ghazals are most commonly found in Arabic literature, but Robert Bly nonetheless has mastered the form. A follow-up to 2001's The Night Abraham Called to the Stars, this rich collection of Bly's ghazals draws inspiration from flamenco dancers, the Gnostics, and the paintings of Robert Motherwell.

"[Bly] brings it all together—integrating erudition, moral concern, introspection and passion."—Minneapolis Star Tribune
