Public Land

Poems
By Matthew  Sumpter

“The portraits, elegies, and landscapes in Public Land illuminate these pages with flashes of shadow and uncharted landscapes of electric, existential honesty. In tensile and subtle verse, Matt Sumpter deftly embraces the rhythms of language and emotional experience, gifting us a poetry that, like the forests our speaker turns and returns to, harbors the most ineffable of growth. This book is unflinchingly, deeply felt. It builds and changes under its own light like a flowering engine, ‘as if this ruin were a kind of rescue.’ This is vital, arresting work by a singular voice, and I know that I will turn and return to these poems in years to come.”
