In this pamphlet, Bly addresses the "holes" we create around and in ourselves while carrying on with the routines of our lives. These poems, as they create a greater awareness of the incredible and awful stories that go on around us every day, become gifts of wisdom to help fill these holes. "What we do not care to say fills the mouth / When we fail to speak a certain essential word."
