Whether in the heart of downtown Toronto, a bookstore in Boston, the courtyard of the Taj Mahal—through the portals of cyberspace—on the banks of a Tampa river, or a journey through time to Georgetown, an old colonial capital, love circumscribes everything. But this book is no wide-eyed outpouring; it probes and questions concepts and beliefs, pokes fun at age, companions taken for granted, and the realization that, like a mannequin in a Manhattan storefront, love is “faceless and, almost, raceless.” If love circumscribes everything, these poems show that everything—economics, politics, ambitions and exiles—also circumscribes love.
