Night garden, moon
calendar, soft mint scent.
Warm wind, silent. Gold,
silver debris.
        —from "Yennecott"

Jeffrey Yang's second collection of poems is an exploration of the various lines—horizon line, time line, blood line, poetic line—beyond which so much vanishes from sight, from memory. With historical documentation, lyrical association, and artistic virtuosity, Yang creates a collage of elegies, losses that are private and those that define our nation. Vanishing-Line is an ambitious book by one of the most fascinating new poets in America.
