Addendum to a Miracle by Mike White
Addendum to a Miracle, Mike White’s second book of poetry, is a collection that explores the shifting borderland between the sacred and the profane. The poems are lucid and often quite spare, focusing upon the ordinary things of this world, yet they pulse with the energy of the unknown, the unspeakable. In poems of a more metaphysical bent, angels appear, only their haloes have come off in the autumn wind and their wings are made of city snow. Poised between humor and terror, White’s Addendum to a Miracle re-envisions the possibilities of grace.
