Hesitancies is Sanjeev Sethi’s fifth book of poems. He is in fine form: he broadens his gaze, looks deeper at himself and his settings. The timbre of a lived life follows his poetic trail. To read him is to recap a glimpse of the hand one is dealt with. Sethi’s poems throb with edged sequences flirting with the savories of nuance playing footsie with the palette of possibilities. His inflection is irenic. He sutures the lesions with the fine thread of inventiveness. Hesitancies will hasp you to its interiority, urging you to seek oneness with its rhythms and residues.
