Poetry. African American Studies. "These revelatory stanzas--deftly and lovingly crafted by a fierce poet at the peak of her powers--are both defiant and threaded with homespun wisdom.

Review:

Whether turning her attention to the power of red lipstick, the space-shuttle explosions that coincide with the speaker's two divorces, begging like Billie Holiday (hush now, don't explain), or burning actual bridges in Arkansas, Antoinette Brim discovers love's two-headed tenacity: it both promises to do us wonders and threatens to do us in. In Blues Haiku, the poet writes: (down so low, don't think / I can get up...) But in this book so mortally full of learning to let go, she repeatedly rises to the occasion, looking for whatever still might help her accomplish the vital release--even if it's not quite (as easy as leaving / Little Rock on the next sliver of dawn). Brim's debut collection of poems is a book of substance and sustenance. --David Clewell, author of The Low End of Higher Things

Antoinette Brim's poems are delicately rooted in domesticity and the rural South and are laden with apt metaphors for romantic dissatisfaction, loss, and honorable flight. The transparently wounded and questing speaker in the poems consistently looks to ministering nature and to the floral world for signs of solace and revelation. Brim s down-home, conversational poems are full of commonplace beauty and forbearance. --Cyrus Cassells, author of Soul Make a Path through Shouting and More than Peace and Cypresses

These revelatory stanzas--deftly and lovingly crafted by a fierce poet at the peak of her powers--are both defiant and threaded with homespun wisdom. Here you'll find tales of family, chronicles of triumph and heartbreak, even an elusive mysticism touching down in unexpected places, as lyrical and soothing as psalms. --Patricia Smith, author of the award-winning books Blood Dazzler and Teahouse of the Almighty
