First I had three

apocalyptic visions, each more terrible than the last. The graves open, and the sea rises to kill us all.

In an array of poetic forms from the rhyming lyric to the philosophical meditation to the prose essay, 3 Sections confronts perplexing divisions of contemporary life―a wayward history, an indeterminate future, and a perpetual longing to out-think time. This is a vital book by one of America's best poets.
