Nemesis involves at its center a belief in the aesthetic value of a form in the workin dissemblance of spritual nature. Though presented in three distinct sequences, the poem is composed as one structure; an entirety through which each sequence acquires the others to serve as its own resonance. Daly's first book, E. Dickinson On s Sleepwalk With the Alphabet Prowling Around Her, is available from Burning Deck.

"The Ground itself is unstable, syntax and grammar subtly shifting under our feet. A strange, keen intelligence outwits our habits with vertiginous cadences that take us into regions yet unmapped."
--Rosmarie Waldrop
