Description: "To write what is human, not escapist", is Henri Cole's project as a poet. In this book, now in paperback, he pursues this aim by folding autobiography and memory into thirty severe and fiercely truthful lyrics. They explore, with boldness, the psyche of a man at the end of the 20th century.

White Spine

Liar, I thought, kneeling with the others,

how can He love me and hate what I am?

The dome of St. Peter's shone yellowish

gold, like butter and eggs. My God, I prayed

anyhow, as if made in the image

and likeness of Him. Nearby, a handsome

priest looked at me like a stone; I looked back,

not daring to go it alone.

The college of cardinals wore punitive red.

The white spine waved to me from his white throne.

Being in a place not my own, much less

myself, I climbed out, a beast in a crib.

Somewhere a terrorist rolled a cigarette.

Reason, not faith, would change him.
