The Alpinist Searches Lonely Places, by Kyle Vaughn (Belle Point Chaps #2)

In The Alpinist Searches Lonely Places, Kyle Vaughn is speaking to someone who shifts as quickly as the locations of these poems. Although often rooted in particular places within the natural world, Vaughn’s work also transfigures its surroundings into uniquely personal terrains. In the spirit of Frank Stanford, these are love poems with a touch of the surreal.

Sample Poem: "June, Huron Peak"

Kyle Vaughn is the author of Calamity Gospel (Cerasus Poetry, forthcoming) and Lightning Paths: 75 Poetry Writing Exercises (NCTE Books, 2018) and the co-author/co-photographer of A New Light in Kalighat (American Councils for International Education, 2013). His poems have appeared in journals such as The Journal, A-Minor, Adbusters, The Boiler, Drunken Boat, Poetry East, Vinyl, the museum of americana, and The Shore (2021 Pushcart Prize nomination). He lives in Little Rock, Arkansas. Find him online at
