The Coincidence of Castles
The Coincidence of Castles is a traveler's guide for those who travel best in the mind. I've never been to Ireland. Tobi Cogswell writes a series of poems here that does more than just hit the fringes and highlights of a country. Cogswell speaks of the luggage it takes, literally and in the soul, to fully feel the breath of Ireland - then she transcends the earthly things, even the grudges, loves, and memories we carry for strength. The Coincidence of Castles is a full life through the eyes of a too-humble poet. Tobi Cogswell is a joy to share words with in this quiet world.
