Caribou is Thomas Mitchell’s second full-length collection of poetry. The poems are humble, straightforward, generous, and range from the sublime to the mysterious, always with lyrical clarity. In poet Dennis Schmitz’s words, “These poems live in the implicit, in hints and not-quite-kept secrets.” Thomas Mitchell has an unswerving purpose in these poems, and he shares it with us.
