 About the Book 

Drunk on the sun and the sea, Kazim Alis new poems swoop linguistically, but ground themselves vividly in the daily and real. Both imprisoned by endlessness and dependent on it for nurturing and care, in Sky Ward Ali goes further than ever before inMoreDrunk on the sun and the sea, Kazim Alis new poems swoop linguistically, but ground themselves vividly in the daily and real. Both imprisoned by endlessness and dependent on it for nurturing and care, in Sky Ward Ali goes further than ever before in sounding out the spaces between music and silence, between sky and ocean, between human and eternal. Daily I wish stitched here to live, moans his Prometheus, wondering what release from familiar bondage might actually portend. So long liberation, his Icarus sings as he plummets from the sky with desperation and grace, ready to unfeather and plunge into the everything-new. Whether in the extended poem-prayer to Alice Coltrane or in the deleted scenes and alternate endings to his critically acclaimed volume Bright Felon, or in the spirit-infused and multi-faceted lyrics he has become known for, Ali once again reinvents possibilities for the personal lyric and narrative.
