From Hagios Press comes Don Kerr's tenth book of poetry. In Wind Thrashing Your Heart, Kerr turns his considerable craft and wit to the contemplation of "love lost/ among the tall grass/ and pungent sage".

Here is a passionate, thoughtful, and humorous look at love, landscape, and the people of the prairies. With a ceaseless intuition for bedrock truths, he overturns our well-worn perceptions and leaves us grinning in the process. This collection of poems is the call to love itself.
