Lessons in Morphology, by Sam Rasnake, is a collection of metaphysical and lyric poems, unified in voice, that explore the many connections, both universal as well as personal, between “I” and “Other”.
“Intelligent, aimed, and gorgeously rendered, this collection of twelve poems by Sam Rasnake manages to quietly undo the heart, line by line. It is truly ‘a reminder of the beautiful’.”
– Kathy Fish, Editor of Best of the Web 2010 anthology
