Slantwise
March 2008, LSU Press

Slantwise fulfills the hope Adcock
once expressed in an interview: "to tell the truth and find that it
is music."

 
From “Barrier Islands”

Skirts of the continent, ruffled in heavy pavane
of sand and tide or frenzied in capriccios
of gales, can sometimes tear like lace in the turns
as of dancers wearing the wind, wearing the moon.
