About this item

Nature provides the lexicon of de Kooning Snow. The poems in de Kooning Snow negotiate many kinds of loss, metaphorically represented as kinds of snow. Classifications of snow, such as prisms, cups, columns, dendrites, and scrolls, mark places among the poems as when, in a weaving, the warp becomes visible. The title poem frames presence, meaning, memory, and erasure. Several of the poems are contained in panels like Rauschenberg’s White Paintings. As the poem “Glacier” reflects, the arc of the book is lyrical rather than narrative, “from point A to point A, no point at all.” The poem “The Last of” placed second for the Joy Harjo Poetry Award judged by Dorianne Laux. Three of the poems have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize; ten have been anthologized.
