Winner of the 2009 FutureCycle Press Poetry Prize. A hauntingly lyrical first collection... The book is permeated by the concepts of mercy and grace, but if this means that there is an underlying theme of hope... there is plenty of shadow to counterbalance the sunshine. --J.S. Watts, Neon
Paperback, First Edition, 86 pages

staring up from a lake, swallow grief, plunge

your hands through, grasp hematite

There’s a goodness of spirit that imbues these excellent poems even when the subject is painful as in “Killings” where it is necessary to end the suffering of a deer hit by a car. “Swans” presents a perfect image of their flight
“I couldn’t believe those ships of marble
Their bright lifting sails
Never knew flight
Was not a matter of tilting wings
But of flinging them
Forward into air
In an endless lasting embrace.”

The authors unique name as well as his poetry. Temple Cone's poems in the first part of book interested me. (Reading them more than once) the second part of No Loneliness was not my poetic linkings. My two overall favorites are Consideration of Earth and Sky and Gambrel.

Here is a clip from Consideration of Earth and Sky
"you're walkingan empty highway, past rockwalls maybe ten millions years old. You look up- granite stained with bird-lime, lichen, freeze cracks and- realize you could eat the god
