About Seeing Them With My Eyes Closed:

"'Sometimes I can't exist,' the speaker of Seeing Them with My Eyes Closed says, closing her sight against her own presence so that she may recall more sharply those that have passed. This book is alive and haunted, full of poems that grapple with hard truths that arrive at astonishing wisdom…Hale's perceptions are incisive, and yet her imagery is a kind of balm. Here is a poetry that lays us bare and heals us in the same gesture. Seeing Them with My Eyes Closed is an astonishing blend of elegy and praise.'"
—James Allen Hall
