About this item

In his second poetry collection, Infinite Altars, James Brasfield tracks the restless interplay of sun and shadow on a fallen feather outside an Italian chapel, the edge of the Gowanus Canal, and a forest footpath after an evening of rain. Atmospheric and reflective, these poems travel with equal ease through the world of fine arts and the gardens of a child’s memory, highlighting the vivid sights and sounds of each in turn.

At a sudden encounter with everyday beauty, serenity suffuses through the author: “Something of that calmness goes with us / back into the world.” Brasfield’s poems invite readers to embrace these unexpected and arresting experiences.
