The poems in this new collection are taken from a verse journal for the years 1985-1990, arranged chronologically to form three sections. The first considers loss and death, themes which have haunted literature since the Gilgamesh epic, and includes fragments of a conversation with the dead. The second is concerned with the world outside, which Weissbort describes as the world of dreams. The third reflects on politics, following the dissolution of the Soviet empire. The unity of the collection is in its style - a sophisticated and adaptable "vers libre" of great lucidity, answering the "journal" subject matter.
