    Margins, edges and coastlines abound in John McCullough's tender, humorous explorations of contemporary life and love. Spacecraft navigates the white space of the page and the distance between people, encompassing everything from lichen to lava lamps, and from the etymology of words to Brighton's gay scene. Its powerful central sequence concerns the death of the author's first partner from an AIDS-related illness. Spacecraft is a humane, spellbinding collection from the winner of the 2012 Polari First Book Prize. 'Alive to the pathos in a punctuation mark, walking through dark places with a spring in its step, Spacecraft is a marvellous book.' - Sarah Howe

    From Pulitzer Prize winner and former Poet Laureate Charles Simic comes a dazzling collection of poems as original, meditative, and humorous as the legendary poet himself. 
    This latest volume of poetry from Charles Simic, one of America’s most celebrated poets, demonstrates his revered signature style—a mix of understated brilliance, wry melancholy, and sardonic wit. These seventy luminous poems range in subject from mortality to personal ads, from the simple wonders of nature to his childhood in war-torn Yugoslavia. 
    For over fifty years, Simic has delighted readers with his innovative form, quiet humor, and his rare ability to limn our interior life and concisely capture the depth of human emotion. These stunning, succinct poems—most no longer than a page, some no longer than a paragraph—validate and reinforce Simic’s importance and relevance in modern poetry.

    MEPHISTOPHELES
    
    Since Thou, O Lord, deign'st to approach again
    And ask us how we do, in manner kindest,
    And heretofore to meet myself wert fain,
    Among Thy menials, now, my face Thou findest.
    Pardon, this troop I cannot follow after
    With lofty speech, though by them scorned and spurned:
    My pathos certainly would move Thy laughter,
    If Thou hadst not all merriment unlearned.
    Of suns and worlds I've nothing to be quoted;
    How men torment themselves, is all I've noted.
    The little god o' the world sticks to the same old way,
    And is as whimsical as on Creation's day.
    Life somewhat better might content him,
    But for the gleam of heavenly light which Thou hast lent
    him:
    He calls it Reason—thence his power's increased,
    To be far beastlier than any beast.
    Saving Thy Gracious Presence, he to me
    A long-legged grasshopper appears to be,
    That springing flies, and flying springs,
    And in the grass the same old ditty sings.
    Would he still lay among the grass he grows in!
    Each bit of dung he seeks, to stick his nose in.

    Somewhere, somehow a lie was presented and accepted by millions of people. This one falsehood has negatively affected more people than any other thought in history.
    Clergy, parents, governments, and teachers wrote and spoke negatively of this misunderstood topic and the general public believed it to be true.
    What is this lie? Wealth is something other than great!
    There are so many sayings people have created to support their poverty and feel comfortable with the fact of having nothing. Have you ever heard any of these?
    Money is the root of all evil. I believe that people who say money is the root of all evil just flat out don’t have any.

    Three celebrated volumes of verse from a feminist icon, poet, and author of the groundbreaking novel Mrs. Stevens Hears the Mermaids Singing.  Letters from Maine: A rugged coastline provides a stark background for Sarton’s images of a tragically brief love. With vulnerability and emotional depth, she explores the willingness to devote everything to a new love, as well as the despair at the memory of what is left over when it fades.  Inner Landscape: This collection of May Sarton’s poems displays her inimitable mix of stately verse and depth of feeling that lurks beneath every line, creating a tantalizing, magnetically charged distance between reader and poet.  Halfway to Silence: After decades of writing flowing lyric verse, May Sarton’s style turned to short, vibrant bursts of poetry. These condensed poems are rife with exuberant impressions of nature and of love, including two of her most acclaimed works, “Old Lovers at the Ballet” and “Of the Muse.”   Recognized as a true pioneer in lesbian literature, “Sarton’s poems enter and illuminate every natural corner of our lives. . . . So strong in their faith and in their positive response to the human condition that they will outlast much of the fashionable, cynical poetry of our ear” (James Martin).
