"This is quite simply an amazing book: deeply moving and insightful, potent and restrained, focused and thoughtful,

mercurial and defiant, personal and yet too mindful and philosophical to be merely so."  - Bruce Bond

“I look about and find whatever I see/unfinished.” Margaret Gibson writes in these powerful and moving poems, which investigate a late-life genesis. Not Hearing the Wood Thrush grapples with the existential questions that arise after experiencing a great personal loss. A number of poems meditate on loneliness and fear; others speak to “No one”—a name “richer than prayer or vow.” In this transformative new collection, Gibson moves inward, taking surprising, mercurial turns of the imagination, guided by an original and probative intelligence. With a clear eye and an open heart, Gibson writes, “How stark it is to be alive”—and also how glorious, how curious, how intimate.
