Publisher Description

From the National Book Award–winning author of This Time, a new volume of poems that explore the very nature of existence.
Divine Nothingness is a meditative reflection on the poet’s past and an elegy to love and the experience of the senses in the face of mortality. From the Jersey side of the Delaware River in Lambertville, Gerald Stern explores questions about who and why we are, locating nothingness in the divine and the divine in nothingness.

From “What Brings Me Here?”


Here I am again and what brings me here

to the same wooden bench

preaching to the city of Lambertville

surrounded by mayapples?


For who in the hell is going to lie down with whom in the hell,

either inside or outside?
