As the title suggests, these poems take not only mortality, but also the impossibility of truly assessing mortality, as their endlessly inexplicable subject. Keith Waldrop’s language is by turns wry, brazen, brilliant, humorous, sorrowful, and entirely unforgettable as he focuses upon all that cannot be absorbed by the logical mind’s measure of aging and loss. His canny meditations make the particulars of daily life shine with an uncanny brilliance as he assesses the quintessentially human inability to exact knowledge from the existence people live, as well as from the inexistence that each person is veering toward. A major force in American avant-garde poetics for decades, Waldrop provides an emotionally compelling and intellectually demanding articulation of what living in full awareness of the “not forever” means.
