The poems in Dancing with a Cowboy are charged with memories and hope, of family, old loves, nostalgia, and regret. Searching for shades of meaning that lurk around old, familiar corners, the poems are constructed from clues found there. Memories are reframed from a new point of reference, defining the curious, the sad, or the just plain ordinary. Tracking the hazardous and the happier moments of life, Rath writes the world alive, always catching its breath, carried forth by emotion.
