In another book of mystic explorations, Cooley mines the decline and passing of his parents’ lives for insights into a Spirit that dwells beyond us, beside us and in us, the poet guided by “the grace light possible to sustain me.” Drawing from received texts in Christian myth for iconic figures he can re-shape as his own, Cooley tries once again to find miracle, even ironic miracle, in the ordinary.
