False Horizon
Sue Standing

Four Way
2003 • 80 pp. 6 x 9 1/4”

$14.95 Paperback, 978-1-884800-46-7

The lyrics in Sue Standing’s False Horizon quietly celebrate the lust that is living, the lust that is memory. These poems, some of which are set in the far reaches of Africa and India, argue for the primacy of the present tense, a present tense that shines erotically out from under the beautiful drapery of a manifold rich and cultural world history. Therefore, False Horizons is a book full of sensations. Standing writes a wonderfully understated poetry about the intimacies of experience. She says, “I need a life that won’t diminish.”
