Overview

“Inquisitive and insightful, the poems of Michael Meyerhofer aren’t afraid to go to those weird places other poets fear or dismiss. There’s equal parts humor and pathos in this poet, and he brings us poems that regard the world with a certain lyric skepticism that, nonetheless, wants to believe in all those old-fashioned ancient truths—beauty, harmony, peace. Meyerhofer’s poems are much more durable than the ‘Cardboard Urn’ of this collection’s title poem—they are resilient, incisive, and ultimately, redemptive.”—Allison Joseph, poet
