Pulse is a collection of love poems, about the sharing of stories and the sharing of our discovered selves; about those moments in our lives that we cling to, then draw upon as we “strive for fabric and texture” in our lives. With echoes of Ondaatje and Wah, Pal’s magical, ringing voice sings intimate. These are sensual poems; explorations of “the pulse in fingertips.” Pulse is a mature, sophisticated collection from one of our truest poets.
