This long poem by Brandon Kreitler discovers a tension between not-quite-opposites: interior and exterior, presence and absence, wanting and having. Artist Lindsay Packer’s complex light-and-shadow collages, interwoven with the poem, give this book the quality of an extraordinary world between worlds.
