"the world is smaller than the center / of your eye"
Adnan's poetry is like another country: there are stars and visions of cowboys, horses and mothers in the hillsides, such memories that shift the landscape like a stage set behind the poet's guiding voice. Included with The Indian Never Had a Horse are other works that demonstrate Adnan's mastery in free verse form and transposed narrative. Her specificity and dreamlike imagery can be traced back to the poet's autobiography, at the same time as the poem's invite the reader to recognize themselves in how these poems suggest a collective way of watching, waiting for the scenes that make the world.
Illustrated with etchings by Russell Chatham.
