"In Constituents of Matter, Anna Leahy looks hard and long at the `solid things' of the world and discovers that they are both reflected and refracted by time. The matter that constitutes her experience occupies a space that is `immense' with `emptiness' but is also `buoyant' with `joy.' Like the moose she looks at and who catches her looking (`Moose, Looking'), I find that I'm contained by a `large life' that's revealed in intervals of repose and stillness."--Michael Collier
