Each poem in Happily is charged with intellectual and emotional urgency. A restless, skeptical poetic intelligence is at work here, winnowing experience, sorting out what is real and authentic from what is false and delusional. Lori Lamothe’s desire is to find, name, and otherwise hold onto those precious few things we can really count on. With her richly metaphorical language and an abiding sense of irony, Lamothe takes us on a life-journey with her, and in the process presents us with images not only of betrayal, loss, and disillusionment, but also truly wondrous and hard-earned glimpses of “ordinary miracles,” how the mind’s fingertips, as she writes, might “grasp a rosary of genuine rain.”
—Fred Marchant, author of The Looking House (Graywolf Press)
What does a poet see in a mirror? History unraveling, the intimacy of grief, a daughter before her own reflection? Lori Lamothe’s poetry offers wide words, easy touch, an invitation to dream incandescence. Throughout Happily Lamothe lets us bow at the mantle of paradox, pondering what stones, stumbles and stairways might show us about living. Rest and delight in these poems, friends for seeing new.,br> —Becky Thompson, author of Zero Is the Whole I Fall into at Night
