Train DanceBook - 2011
Train Dance adopts the rhythm and return of the commute through the Hudson Valley into Manhattan as a motif for the echoes of memory and event that contour a life. Reflecting on the place of poetry amid the urban hustle--a way one might "Carry myself like a tune/ Into the chorus of the city"--Wells records a series of linked journeys in which a son comes to understands his mother's death and writing engraves events in memory, retaining events as locations--station stops, as it were--to which one returns.
