Map of the Last

Enda Coyle-Greene

Paper $13.95    |    978-1-906614-76-8    |    2014

Irish poet Coyle-Greene’s second collection of poems is brimming with a sense of a world in motion. The poems’ protagonists are rarely still; wanderers, drifters, nightwalkers, and aimless drivers resign themselves to regret, remorse, or simple misunderstandings. The past to which many of them are drawn remains a place where "everything’s done differently."

Excerpt from Map of the Last . . .
Between the Lines
The train starts, the city slides back
black-edged as a Mass card.
Soot-sleek after this afternoon’s rain,
the last light shrinks,
banked clouds blanch
suddenly over the bay’s mouth.

We stand in the aisle, stranded
between newspapers, flapped
and crackled, back-handed into place;
you say you’re tired, I straighten,
shift my weight, balance for both of us.
