On Account of Darkness

On Account of Darkness, Finishing Line Press (2011). One voice in this haunting new collection “wishes for rain so I can look inside of things” – and look inside Joseph Soldati does. Readers familiar with his wit and exuberance will find those here, but in muted tones. These world-wise poems are shadowed by grief and war, separation and loss, landfills and other graves. [...] But just as nightfall enables us to see the stars, Soldati’s poems shine through their dark matter with a clean, sharp beauty. And mercy: From the literal and figurative heart of this book comes the gorgeous singing grace of “Five Lullabies for Tonight."
      --Don Colburn, author of Another Way to Begin, As If Gravity Were a Theory, and Because You Might Not Remember
