Charles Levenstein's poems touch down in familiar and strange territory. He maps the interior landscape whose signpost bears his own name. Home and away, back and forth, old and new--all the journeys through time and space that make a private life, a public world. The writer joins mile-marked segments to make a spiritual yardstick that he sets against his experience so the reader can take a measure.
