This collection of poems seemed mostly discourse on discourse at first. But then it turned into "sky & all the/ unstunned stars the moon just/ fallen short of full..." and the like, to seem more communion- than discourse-centered, a notion supported by my later coming on the word "paten" ("plate; esp.: one of precious metal for the Eucharistic bread"--a word I've started seeing a lot of in poems lately).--Bob Grumman
