Perfect Dark by Susan Maurer

this book is unique in our catalogue in a couple of ways. it is a collection of poems written over a long period of time, something like 15 years, & it's the first (& last) manuscript i've received in hard copy with all the extra work that brings when you don't own a scanner. at times i feel i know this book by heart, which, as this is the book it is, is a good feeling
