Simmons B. Buntin's first book of poetry is Riverfall,
a collection of work that sometimes slides knowingly around slow
bends and other times rushes without caution down the deep and narrow
ravine. Always it explores our relationship to the environment, whether
the urban structures of our own making, pastoral settings on the
metropolitan fringe, or the light and dark edges of our vanishing
wilderness—and our own psyche.
Riverfall includes 32 poems written
over the past fifteen years. Yet the work—its words and subjects
and insights—are timeless. From our beginning in water to our
end in premeditated light, our lives are like the river. In Riverfall,
we are submerged, then rejuvenated in the clarity of our new course.
A beautiful contribution to the conversation
on place and belonging in the natural world.
— Alison Hawthorne Deming
A bold collection embracing
and finding new views on established themes.
