Sleepwalker's Songs: New and Selected Poems by James Cervantes

James Cervantes's Sleepwalker's Songs seems so sane, its light so much that of the quotidian, that it is only with a certain shock (like that produced by a dream remembered) that one realizes what one has really experienced

                                                                           - T.R. Hummer


Cervantes, one can reasonably assume, believes longing is its own music.  Be forewarned. These are the poems of someone who knows the dangers in such music and has chosen to dance to it anyway.
