Nowhere Nearer explores distance and closeness, the circularity of thought, and the lure of alternative futures. These poems search for the word’s equivalent to music’s home key.

Unknown

Here is a poet who wants to “speak in our/plainest tongues” but who also aims “to sing my way out.” Alice Miller looks hard at history’s terrifying straight lines, yet time and again turns to the obsessive, sometimes redemptive circlings of art. She knows that in a universe ruled by time and death, words can both rescue and destroy us, sometimes in a single utterance.
