Pacific Walkers

Poems

by Nance Van Winckel

Nance Van Winckel's wry, provocative slant on the world and her command of images and ideas enliven these stunning poems. Presented in two parts, Pacific Walkers first gives imagined voice to anonymous dead individuals, entries in the John Doe network of the Spokane County Medical Examiner's Records. The focus then shifts to named but now-forgotten individuals in a discarded early-1900s photo album purchased in a secondhand store. We encounter figures devoid of history but enduring among us as lockered remains, and figures who come with histories - first names and dates, and faces preserved in photographs - but who no longer belong to anyone. The voice that brings us these poems is multifaceted-now a reporter for the Daily Sun, now a child, now a ghost, now historical, now autobiographical-always revelatory in its life force and urgent questioning. It is, finally, as fluid as the river that winds through, uniting these singular and unknown selves. Their worlds - and ours - intersect and flicker in this haunting book.
