    About The Book

    « A lyricist at heart, McGriff is a masterful maker of metaphor. » — Third Coast

    « There is majestic beauty in these descriptions, and it is clear that McGriff honors this place as a place — not as mere setting, but as a distinct element of his verse. » — Gently Read Literature

    Michael McGriff’s second full-length collection explores interior landscapes and illustrates life in a rural community in the Pacific Northwest. Whether tender or hard-hitting, McGriff juxtaposes natural images of deep forests, creeks, coyotes, and crows against the harsher oil-grease realities of blue-collar life, creating poems that read like folk tales about the people working in grain mills, forests, and factories.

    « New Civilian »

    The new law says you can abandon your child

    in an emergency room,

    no questions asked. The young father

    carries the sleeping boy

    through the hospital doors.

    Later, alone, parked at the boat basin,

    he takes a knife from his pocket,

    cuts an unfiltered cigarette in two,

    lights the longer half in his mouth.

    He was a medic in the war.

    In his basement are five bronze eagles

    that once adorned the walls

    of a dictator’s palace.

    Michael McGriff attended the University of Oregon; the University of Texas at Austin, where he was a Michener Fellow in creative writing; and Stanford University, where he was a Stegner Fellow. He is the co-founding editor and publisher of Tavern Books and lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.
