The poems in Meier's second collection stumble toward a gesture like Shelley's to Jane Williams: guitar given in place of song.

These poems posit a transmutation of clarity: "The sentences were so clear you had to run into them / and discover your head in the sliding glass door / of the house on stilts." The whole a love poem to that blow or barrier. "A note in the form of a kiss passed / through the barricades."
