Default The Necessity of Symbols

My book of poetry, The Necessity of Symbols, will soon be available in both paperback ($5.99) and on Kindle ($3.99). As always, it bears my body, mind, soul slant that stems from Christian mystical tradition. Here's the inscription:

But now, to the best of our ability we use symbols
appropriate to things Divine, and from these
again we elevate ourselves, according to our degree,
to the simple and unified truth of the spiritual vision.
Pseudo-Dionysius, On Divine Names

The book is 100 pp. Unlike lots of modern poetry, it's approachable (and not drivel). Many of the poems have been published in various widely circulated magazines and journals.
