High Speed Through Shoaling Water
New PoemsBook - 2007
Longlisted for the 2008 ReLit Award for Poetry High Speed Through Shoaling Water incorporates the beauty of the rural landscape with the strangeness of living in today's world. These deceptively simple poems cover rural life, social issues, love's vicissitudes, aging and the writing life. Throughout the book,Wayman interweaves reflections on the landscape of world and work with musings on personal and communal history. High Speed Through Shoaling Water is both celebratory and elegiac, personal and political--recording the passage of time, the events that mark the years and the biological force that bears all living things forward, whether they want to travel that way or not.
