Playful, allusive, persona-shifting poems from a Biblioasis poetry editor, whose work has been sung at the Opéra National in Paris.

"A poet of direct speech and muscular lexicon."—Quill & Quire

Nimbly slipping between personae, masks, and moods, the prosody-driven poems of Sum weigh the volatility and mutability of the self against the forces of habit, instinct, and urge. With homages to Hopkins, Graves, Wislawa Szymborska, Paul Muldoon, and more, and in allusion-dappled, playfully sprung stanzas, this third book from poet and critic Zachariah Wells both wears its influences openly and spins a sound texture all its own, in a collection far greater than its parts.

Zachariah Wells is the author of two collections of poetry and a book of criticism (Career Limiting Moves, 2014).
