The poems of WINGED DEATH HEAD: A NEW ENGLAND ALMANAC begin as a monthly calendar of specific places across the year, but they soon engage the epochs inscribed in its graveyards. These range from the early boneyards and burial grounds to Victorian cemeteries to the present expanses of granite slabs.

For all of its quaint image, New England remains a complex, sometimes Gothic, and often surreal layering set against a cold sea. This set of poems invokes the region’s character in the face of the shifting seasons. Somehow, the ancient past is always lingering in the shadow.
