    This volume includes, with modest modifications, Timothy Steele's first two collections of poetry, Sapphics against Anger and Other Poems and Uncertainties and Rest. Steele uses an array of poetic forms and styles, excelling in all. Poems to read aloud, poems to return to again and again.The last stanza of "Family Reunion":And it's a resolution of sorts. Staid,Together for the past, if nothing more,We share the same relaxing masquerade--A life that's always gentle, never strict,In which there's space enough for us and forLies we no longer care to contradict.
