Most experiences lie in the long miles between life's stations, but we look toward the next town's lights for reassurance that we will eventually arrive. When those lamps dim, or are passed by in the night, we become disoriented, caught in the blur of a passing landscape. The poems in "Station Lights" embrace this chaos, seeking understanding in the midst of the unfamiliar.
