Stephen Dunn continues his tradition of "holding the quotidian and the transcendent simultaneously in view" with humor and tenderness in, "Where He Found Himself." "The new man unfolded a map and pointed to a dark spot on it. 'See, that's how/far away I feel all the time, right here/among all of you.' he said. / 'Yes,' John the gentle mule replied,/'alienation is clearly your happiness."
