A Review of Mary Lou Buschi’s Paddock

A new review in The Night Heron Barks: A Sanctuary for Poet & Poem by Rachel Jamison Webster

Agency and Chorus in Mary Lou Buschi’s Paddock

Writers remember things that exceed their single lifetime. And sometimes we feel ourselves to be in communication with beings who do not have a body, who are trying to find their own forms through our bodies or words. This is the unspoken premise behind Mary Lou Buschi’s brilliant book, Paddock, which is narrated by two Girls and a Chorus. The poems initiate a simultaneous seeking as the girls set forth to find a mother and Buschi writes into her own procreative desire.
