Divine Nothingness is a meditative reflection on the poet’s past and an elegy to love and the experience of the senses in the face of mortality. From the Jersey side of the Delaware River in Lambertville, Gerald Stern explores questions about who and why we are, locating nothingness in the divine and the divine in nothingness. From “What Brings Me Here?” Here I am again and what brings me here to the same wooden bench preaching to the city of Lambertville surrounded by mayapples? For who in the hell is going to lie down with whom in the hell, either inside or outside?
