Like Ewing’s first book of poetry, Hearing, and answering with music (The Mercury Press, 2009), this book juxtaposes poems that resonate with each other – rhythmically, melodically, visually, emotionally.

This is poetry of constant flux, discovery and rediscovery, entering man-made and biological worlds, transforming them and being transformed. Even the horizon begins to disappear, as earth becomes sky.

"I think of the book as a series of musical explorations, which I call 'sets'. These explorations are meant to be read in sequence, the shifts in tone and emotion between each set like shifts in a narrative or between sets in a single musical performance. There is no plot line in this narrative, only the unfolding of consciousness in a particular place and within a life. The place is Toronto, a conflux of human and extra-human tides. The life is one of continuous push and pull, of appearance, disappearance, reappearance." - Guy Ewing
