"Pages Torn from 'The Book of Joyous Failure'" is a work that questions what happens in between silence and unsilence, raising the issue of the utterability of that which poetry aspires to pronounce in its act of transmission. The joy that the poet discovers is that what must be lived can not be spoken. Enjoy these imperfect musings from an award winning poet in the transition between writing on and off of the page.
