The Signalman is Ezra Miles’ debut collection of poems. They coalesce around the poet’s time working in a rural signalbox, the isolation and loneliness falling to an impassioned dialogue with God. At turns both violent and tender, these lyrical poems navigate an ecologically-strained landscape populated by foxes and ghosts. Suffering and beauty sit side by side, as history rotates around personal tragedy, heartbreak and loss. A strange fire burns never far from the surface, its embers blowing across the collection, illuminating the harsh environment and casting long shadows across every face. Who are we, when we’re on our own? And what are we, without each other? The Signalman points us in the right direction.
