Harm’s Way

Poems

Eric Leigh

Publication Year: 2010

“The past is a flame you must learn to hold / your hand above,” Eric Leigh writes in this first volume of poems, a poignant meditation on the harm that we can and cannot keep from those we love, and the harm that cannot be kept from us. Taking place in both the rural and the urban, in fields and on sidewalks, in gay bars and in laboratories, with topics as diverse and powerful as a father's suicide, a mother's resilience, coming out, lost love and the continuing plight of HIV, Leigh’s poems locate the heartbreaking music in these struggles.
