Edward Harkness
Ed Harkness Poet and Poetry

In The Law of the Unforseen, Edward Harkness confronts the bleak truths of our time in which we search for the right words to keep all who might be labeled as “other” alive and thriving in the true family of things, a union that blends the actual and imagined and includes the living world as urgently as the world of ugly vase, thrift-store spoon, broken, half-buried beach shell, and the “floral design of pond ice.” The embrace of this important collection is truly Whitmanesque. I deeply admire how it keeps breaking me even as it pulls me toward its heart where every bloodied instant lives alongside some unlikely bit of mending
