By Thomas Aslin
Lost Horse Press, 2016, 64 pages, $18


Poet Thomas Aslin earned his M.F.A. in creative writing at UM, where he studied with Richard Hugo, William Kittredge and Madeline DeFrees. This is his second full-length collection of poems. Looking through the lenses of family, loss and landscape, he focuses on the rolling Palouse country on Washington’s far eastern edge. Readers will come away with images of untended white lilacs sprawling along a fence and roadside crosses adorned with plastic flowers.
