Powered by lush imagery and lyricism, the poems in THE SLEEP OF FOUR CITIES use the city as a metaphor for the complexity of self. This book invites the reader to take a journey through multiple cities--cities of memory, of desire, of imagination, of discovery, of loss--with only the map of language as a guide. The cities in this book are not always easily unlocked--they are at once tangible and invisible- they exist both inside and outside the speakers of the poems. Throughout the book, these speakers seek to discover what is within their grasp and what, like water, will slip through their fingers.
