Deathwatch for My Father

Deathwatch for my Father(Chax Press, 2003)


A handsewn chapbook with letterpress cover, Deathwatch for My Father is a long poem, meditation, and memorial from the poet to his dying father in which Lazer attempts to use the thing he knows, language, in order to reconcile the thing he can’t know, death: “my mind inclines / to ask and what / is it perhaps to / turn your death into / linguistic inquiry / a somewhat familiar / terrain.”
