This is the Hour of Lead-

by Philip Jeck

subscriber exclusive


"This is the Hour of Lead-" was made with Emily Dickinson's poem,
"After great pain, a formal feeling comes-"(1862?) in mind, from which the title comes.

sleeve notes: (with apologies to Ralph J. Gleason):

"for all our smiles and grit, this feels like a country
with sadness infecting its soul... all those bittersweet late nights
with notes of hopeless love grown cold... who can interpret,
sad not maudlin... gain dignity by slow shedding of tears..."
