Preface . . .

 This is a selection of Allison Grayhurst’s poems spanning over 25 years. Her unique, impressionistic language moves with urgency towards a deeper spiritual understanding, often arriving at potent revelations. Many of the poems confront the duality of life, opening up to infinity while trying to find the signature of infinity in the most rudimentary aspects of existence. There is a rich sexuality in many of them, with a thread of longing flowing through complex imagery. These poems are layered, evoking a deep sense of inner struggle while connecting with a universal rhythm, demanding to be read and re-read.
