Synopsis: Poetic exploration of caregiving, mortality, and illness from within the medical establishment.
Review: Cortney Davis is both a nurse practitioner and a fine poet. In Details of Flesh, she brings poetry and caregiving together with lyrical, evocative language that perfectly captures the tangibility of her subject. The richness of each moment in the high- stakes setting of sickness, healing, and death informs Davis's writing with a quiet honesty and a watchful eye. In "What the Nurse Likes," for instance, Davis expresses the beauty found even in death: "I like how dying patients become beautiful. / Their eyes concentrate light. Their skin / becomes thin and delicate as fog." Thomas Lux writes that the compassionate, courageous poems in Details of Flesh are "powerful and beautiful."
