"Exit-Sky is a 50-poem poetry collection, the first to be published by Warren Woessner in a decade. While living an extraordinarily unique life as lawyer, scientist, and poet, Woessner has created an effecting style based on understatement and influences from Chinese poets like Han Shan and Li Po. These short poems may appear understated on the surface, but they are meditations that open up whole worlds via keen observations of the natural world and people. “Prairie Grass”: Almost touching the snow banks, the thin stalks are bent down like old women, walking home from a country market, empty early. They are holding just a handful of seeds-- shopping baskets full of wind.
