The poems in <em>The Next Place</em> inspect both the geographies of landscape and our own interior geographies. These poems find the borders where lives intersect, where the sight of a former lover evokes memories of -a bruised Volvo...skin that smelled like burned oil.- No matter who inhabits these poems, and a large cast moves through them--Chet Baker, King Lear, Isaac Newton, various friends of the poet, both living and dead--they inhabit a space where one world is always encroaching on the next. A boy contemplates holding up a store with his father's gun, a student and teacher debate the ending of a Raymond Carver story, a father sees in his adopted daughter -a story built to parallel mine.- Through their wide range of subject matter, the poems in <em>The Next Place</em> assert as fascinating as the surface of this world is, it is only the beginning of what we need to understand this place and our existence in it.
