"In this debut from a grownup poet, heartfelt scenes are filmed by a jittery cameraman, making for a moving read that will appeal to those who don’t take their poetry quite straight, who want to be led, like 'wayward bees to open windows.'" — Craig Morgan Teicher for

CHURCHES explores the way our experience of the world is shaped through the stories we tell about ourselves. These poems braid multiple narratives that often take place in different times, or are seen through the eyes of various speakers. Here Prufer explores the interior and subjective nature of time as he engages with mortality, both as a cultural construct and a deeply personal, unarticulatable anxiety: "In this filtered light, / my brain is a nimbler thing, and strange. It loves / the slow derangements distance brings."
