The Good Dark by Annie Guthrie

In the sequence of poems comprising Annie Guthrie’s first book, the quest for the meaning of human consciousness and its tangled subjectivity is drawn as a slow-building narrative of the mystic experience.

The journey enacted is that of the self as character, who encounters insurmountable mysteries in a breaking selfhood.

A dossier of contemplative exploration, THE GOOD DARK chronicles an immersive search in three acts: Unwitting, Chorus, and Body: stations through which the character must pass, and where she is accumulatively confessed, compounded and erased.

the gossip

I don’t always want what we have, she is saying.
Outside, dark clouds, fish hopping, tilling waves
back from shore. He is silent.
Sometimes more is happening, he says, finally.
The sun’s coming up, she says. Look how the light is kept.
I’d like to keep it up, he says.
Don’t make apart when otherwise the same, he says.
She is silent, tilling shore back from shore.
Don’t give darkness a face, he says, darkening.

Annie Guthrie is a writer and jeweler living in Tucson. She has a metalsmithing studio at Splinter Brothers Warehouse and can be found through her website, www.annieguthrie.net. She teaches at the University of Arizona Poetry Center and also mentors select students wishing to apprentice in poetry or to further their art projects through her courses in “Oracular Writing.”
