Physically grounded in the American South and Southwest, the poems in ""Are We There Yet?"" chart the poet's psychic and spiritual journey through the regions of youth and maturity, faith and uncertainty, innocence and experience, and past and present, reflecting the contrarieties of time and its incompleteness. These lyrics depict an unfolding emotional dialectica - a struggle, where moments and events are held up and analyzed for clues about how we stand firm amid the velocity of circumstance and experience.From ""Contrary"" - She darkened where she went, and now her blood, too, storms my veins, and I see how I've spent too many days like this, fuming and blustering about too little: money, time or energy. Nothing won't task our reservoir of complaint. Even the mildest day invites reproach.
Are We There Yet?
