The first full-length collection of poems, published in 1987.

Dameron’s poetry is that rare combination of what can be and what is, in which all flights of fancy are tempered with the grit of a world in which desert rats match “their luck / against everything that smells their blood.” The consistent images running through the book are of eagles and whales, of sky and sea, sun and moon, blood and mind – basic, elemental images rife with symbolism yet used efficiently enough to remain effective.
