OBJECT LESSON

https://jenniferjeanwriter.weebly.com

In Object Lesson, Jennifer Jean explores human-trafficking, objectification, pain, and survival with compassion, respect, and as a witness to women. This powerful and stunning collection dives deep and connects through stories where what is wounded is holy, is important, is surviving. Jean finds hope in darkness in honoring the lives of women and a life led: In the language of flora—/she is Regal. Sometimes called Spear/or Welted or Blessed—. These were poems I could not turn away from; poignant and haunting, I held their truth and their strength. This is an important book , one to be read by all—these voices need to be heard and Jean’s poems need to be in the world.

  ~ Kelli Russell Agodon, author of Dialogues with Rising Tides (Copper Canyon Press)

All Small Planes

“We’ve lost more Americans to the opioid crisis than to the Vietnam War. Eric Roy begins this extraordinary chapbook by asking that you conceptualize this number….These poems are for the ever-shrinking number of people that don’t yet know someone taken or affected by this crisis. Now you know someone. Here is a face, a life, you can recognize when you hear of the ever-increasing numbers.  All Small Planes takes an abstract idea, a number, and makes it personal. It paints with gorgeous spiraling language to frame a context. It’s a frank and honest portrayal of addiction and the people left behind. ”

Florence Nightingale’s Lost Log

What strange mercy I sew with dull pins,” says Florence Nightingale in Bernadette McComish’s fascinating new chapbook. In spare, deadly accurate lines–a nurse’s work in Crimean winter is “closing eyes/frozen open”–McComish will show you the antipodes of the human condition: our capacity for suffering, our ability to love in the face of horror, and the silence at the heart of our lives. Florence Nightingale’s Lost Log is a brilliant achievement
