From the author: "Dedications are the closest I've ever come to titling individual poems. I did not set out to write a collection of dedicatory poems, but found that they naturally gathered themselves into a kind of community. What is it that binds any two people together? How do we nurture relationships across culture, space and time? For whom do we write a poem? Paul Celan wrote: ‘The poem is lonely. It is lonely and en route. Its author stays with it. Does this very fact not place the poem already here, at its inception, in the encounter, in the mystery of encounter?’”
