Night and darkness are fugitive in a world of continuous illumination. Night, the region of mystery, of inner and outer space, of dreams, transformation and refuge from the quotidian, was exalted by the romantics. The poems in Night Calling are inspired by the night; its moods and companions hover at the edges from midnight Venice to the choreography of the funeral cortege, from abandoned Czernobyl to the winter solstice. Autumn and winter are the chosen seasons, falling cadence the preferred mode."
