Charles Rafferty's latest collection of prose poems turns philosophical. In A Cluster of Noisy Planets, Rafferty captures the rhythms and patterns of life as a lover, father, and poet, distilling each moment to its essence and grounding them collectively in the wider perspective of a changing world, the constant turning of the stars and the changing seasons of the New England countryside. With a knowing nod to the passage of time--day to day, year to year, epoch to epoch--these lyrical poems form a record of the profound, ephemeral joys, losses, and echoes of commonplace moments.
