Martha Collins is the author of numerous collections of poems, most recently Night Unto Night and its companion, Day Unto Day. She has also published three collections of cotranslated Vietnamese poetry—most recently Black Stars: Poems by Ngo Tu Lap (with the author). She is currently editor-at-large for FIELD magazine and one of the editors of the Oberlin College Press.
This masterful companion to Day Unto Day finds common ground between contradictions—beauty and horror, joy and mortality, the personal and the political. Like its predecessor, this collection begins with time: six sequences, each written in one month a year, over the course of six years, bringing together the natural and the all-too-human.
