Product Overview

"Denham is as comfortable with the daily violence--psychic and actual--of urban life as he is with the small-town world of boats and lines in the water. Junkies and garbage strikes are as strikingly, and lovingly, depicted as 'a lakeshore lined with alder, maple, fir.' The pastoral is juxtaposed against a world 'ripped on caffeine . . . lush on home wine and the perfume of a young woman.' "
--Quill & Quire
"in the windsong. This is no translation,
this long-line tow trawling the abyssal
silt, oceanic-soul, in the low opaline
light sifting down through fire's alburnum."
--Excerpt, "Windstorm"
"Windstorm" is a passport to the place where chaos and form meet; Denham's timeless ethereal gaze is rooted in the mastery of poetic forms such as the sonnet and Dante's terza rima. These quiet, forceful poems explore heaven, earth and sea with arresting images, ideas and words. Like the wind, Denham's poetry has the power to move.
