The Near Surround
Nancy Mitchell

Four Way
2002 • 68 pp. 6 x 9 1/4"

$13.95 Paperback, 978-1-884800-42-9

Nancy Mitchell suppresses her narrative with iron will. The resulting poems are dense, quiet, small. The page becomes the scream the poems refuse: “Now I watch / what gathers between us, // between me / and what isn’t you.” Or, at times, the scream and the smile: “Her breath fogs the window, / the window clears, // fogs the window, / it clears again.”
