Fleet River traces the journey of two travelers through landscapes earthly and otherworldly, following the river as it turns, dips underground, then reemerges unexpectedly as they fall in love with the world, as though for the first time. Mimicking the river's shifting course, the poems revise themselves as the book moves forward, turning against their own best discoveries, proving that the pilgrims' journey is less the discovery of love than the re-creation, poem by poem, of love's possibilities.
