Hurrying through errands, attending a dying mother, helping her child down the playground slide, the speaker in these poems wonders: What is the difference between the self and the soul? The secular and the sacred? Where is the kingdom of heaven? And how does one live in Ordinary Time - during those apparently unmiraculous periods of everyday trouble and joy? How are questions of violence and nonviolence considered and enacted in talking with a friend after a movie, remembering the failed strategies of childhood, reading the newspaper, or considering how to govern one's own heart and its unruly citizens? Marie Howe's poems evoke the social and political climate in which we live - and unravel the interactions, ambiguities, and celebrations of daily life.

Hurrying through errands, attending a dying mother, helping her own child down the playground slide, the speaker in these poems wonders: what is the difference between the self and the soul? The secular and the sacred? Where is the kingdom of heaven? And how does one live in Ordinary Time--during those periods that are not apparently miraculous?
