“ . . . It is a feast to follow these evocations and beholdings, their clarity and sweep, where even grit on a ripening orange comes to resemble “the night side of planets.” How rare it is to find so sure and accomplished a meditative eye.”
–Daniel Tobin, author of The Net and Belated Heavens
"At the Bottom of the Sky is a book in which every moment is earned and nothing is careless or unconvincing. Morrill is a poet worthy of the themes of maturity: defeat, grief, and lack of prospects, as well as resilience, happiness, and fruition. With virtuosity and finesse, and with geographical and sympathetic breadth, Morrill brings justice and beauty to these large, challenging subjects.”
– Alane Rollings, author of The Struggle to Adore
These poems circle unexpected, compelling questions, intent on transporting their full measure to the reader (as it might be revealed only in that company). Avid to understand “how we get human every day,” these poems rush and retreat, feint and decide, test and welcome, and always branch. The result is a volume laden with rambunctious splendors and meticulous reflections brought forth in a voice that is musical, witty, perceptive, affecting.
