Louis Simpson called the same volume “delightful and astonishing.” Bluestone has won The Greensboro Review Poetry Prize, The Thomas Merton Prize, as well as prizes in the Robert Penn Warren Competition and elsewhere. His work has appeared in Poetry, The Sewanee Review, The Hudson Review, and many other journals. His latest book, THE PAINTED CLOCK, was released this year on March 1 and is already in its second printing.

From “The Unveiling”

Now the world’s only
Season’s growing older,
The low stubble
Of the shuttling sky
And night, too,
A blanket of conclusions.
Of course, we could also say:
When night comes,
Whatever’s in the ground
Will keep like a new year
In winter’s closet,
And, sooner or later, it, too,
Will make ghosts of all
Brief distinctions.
