Maurice Manning’s most recent book of poems is One Man’s Dark (Copper Canyon, 2017).


  • After Reading Charles Wright I Turn Out the Light and Listen to the Rain

    Protestant American darkness
  • Licks

    We each were given three licks
  • Mr. Blake’s Skin Don’t Dirt

    Because the vanishing point hovers
  • Sleep

    There is a room, and inside the room
  • The Gone and the Going Away

    The world I know keeps going farther
