Take to the Highway

Arabesques for Travelers
By Bryce Milligan



Take to the Highway is a book about journeys and the intricate memory map of human consciousness. Much of the book was literally written while driving across the expanse of Texas. The poems embody family history, anticipate a mother’s coming death, and embody the reflections of this “poet’s poet” on a life lived along many roads within an interior landscape. Formal and yet deeply personal, the book dares to ask, in the words of reviewer Lorna Dee Cervantes, “Who are you again?”
