“Hoffman’s gorgeous poems deftly navigate the tightrope between grief and humor, and find their muscular, beating heart in the dailyness of dog walks and seedlings and in paying close attention to what surrounds you, a reminder that ‘if you want to live, live/in the moment.’’ —Sarah Freligh, author of Sad Math

David Ruekberg has published two books of poetry, Where Is the River Called Pishon? (Kelsay Books, 2018) and Hour of the Green Light (Futurecycle Press, 2020). His poems have appeared in Barrow Street, Cimarron Review, DMQ, Lake Effect, Mudfish, Northwest Review, Yankee, and elsewhere. He was awarded a residency at Jentel Arts in Sheridan, Wyoming.

“Living in both lift and gravity, these poems pull us toward the green light—that longing for reunion with our most original self.” —Charlie Coté, author of I Play His Red Guitar
