Yet Sensate Light: A Poetry Reading and Q&A with Michael Tod Edgerton

Michael Tod Edgerton reads from his poetry collections Vitreous Hide and Yet Sensate Light. Tod's poems have appeared in Boston Review, Denver Quarterly, New American Writing, Sonora Review, and other literary journals.

Willing the word to become flesh, the poems in Vitreous Hide both reveal and enact yearning—for love, for the beloved, for words to transform beloved image to beloved substance. Orpheus reaches for Narcissus through a new mirror of myth, now dim with distance, now bright with the possibility of connection. These gorgeous lyrics reach for the embodiment of the other in order to be, themselves, embodied.
