Sources for Thomas Heise's Horror Vacui include the rosary, the poems of Edward Taylor and the Persian ghazal. Horror Vacui is remarkably difficult to categorize. Most poems here are impersonal, even when addressing his father's death, but there are quite personal moments. Although most of the poems involute syntax or otherwise play with the formal conventions of verse, there are also some poems of plainspoken narrative. While the overall tone is contemplative, there are also poems or lines that are pretty funny, even when they're about death.

These are ambitious, moving poems, deft, panged, and stunning. Existential chilliness, mourning, and dread find a uniquely compelling voice in Thomas Heise's poetry. And it's this property of being barely held together that makes Horror Vacui so striking. an extraordinary mood piece.

Heise’s work frequently focuses on the unstable relationship between time, memory, and desire in prose and poetry that returns repeatedly to real and imagined losses, centripetally swirling around them out of a need to understand, re-experience, and represent their singular nature and the aftereffects they accrue.

While I was hovering in bed barely asleep, my father would sneak in to check on me. Sometimes he came in the shape of a stranger, but his black eyes with a mark of sorrow never changed. When I was younger I could run so fast my shadow would fly off me. I would leave it behind in the city where I was born. There was no city, only my mother's arms.
