Eight years after poet Philip Ramp left America for Greece, he returned for a visit. Everything looked different to him, in a way that he knew he wouldn’t have seen if he had been living there. Arrivals and Departures is based on that experience, with arriving and departing switching roles in the poems, depending on mood and place.
