Dan Bellm honors the practice of counting: counting time down, counting time forward. And he engages his readers in the practice of marking our moments, and our moment, with unaccountable grace.-Forrest Hamer, author of Call & Response, Middle Ear, and Rift

Counting offers us Dan Bellm's deft conversational tone and his blending of the deep and the quotidian, with mesmerizing cadences that carry us further into ourselves and further into the wider world, both accountable and accounted for.-Molly Fisk, author of Listening to Winter and The More Difficult Beauty
