Wherever You Lay Your Head
Jane Miller

In this, her seventh collection of poems, Miller redefines poetry to accommodate a richly complex lyric style. Intelligent, lush and visionary, her poems have been described as the poetic equivalents of the paintings of Jackson Pollack or Jasper Johns. Miller's poetry is ultra modern, mixing elements of pop culture with high art, sexuality with intellectual investigation, complexity with brilliant lucidity. Japan's master print artist Ando Hiroshige immortalized scenes in all weather, seasons, and times of day along the Tokaido, the "Eastern Sea Road." By way of Hiroshige, Miller views the joyous details and diffcult lives of innkeepers, cooks, porters, wrestlers, and men and women of the pleasure quarter of another age. She freely associates from Hiroshige's thousand details of nature to illuminate life in the nuclear age in both Japan and the American West.
