About The Book

Praise

“”How far desire takes the body,” Honor Moore marvels in these darkly sensuous poems. In the background of Darling lies an emotionally charged meditation on the passage of time and the complexities and persistence of desire. And in the foreground? Sex and sorrow, acute notation of the body’s life, the intoxication of the senses.” –Mark Doty

“These poems are dreamlike. Behind a provocative veil there is an erotic energy in this unique and important collection from a seasoned poet.” –Ruth Stone
