Heather Tone

Likenesses explores the frontiers of metaphor and the power of repetition. The poems are at times at times skeptical, at times prayer-like, at times compulsive. They are populated by constantly shifting forms: cars become teenagers, leaves become “fall colored powder,” a thing breaks “into being.

For Likenesses, Heather Tone

"It's almost impossible to explain why the playfulness of Heather Tone's Likenesses produces such delight. . . . Freedom, light, leggerezza, speed, and depth. Crystal abyss, 'nothing,' a touch of kabala. Perfect projections of shades between death and life, a scent of Eden. Like four-year-old boys throwing clumps of mud at each other, bursting into happy laughter. These lines scream with joy." —Boston Review
