9781878325211: If You Return Home With Food: Poems

Poetry. "Having seen a world skinned in violet,/ one is allowed to kiss,' says Mary Crockett Hill. There is a characteristic mixture of hope and dread in these observations. These poems are aware of life's dangers -- the loneliness and estrangements we face -- and thereby both celebrate and mourn our 'knuckles' bare facts, our all- too mortal bodies. Direct, yet tinged with the imaginative power of dream, this fine book is energetic, engaging, and completely unpredictable" -- Mark Cox. Mary Crockett Hill teaches writing at Roanoke College. Her poems have appeared in Boston Review, Commonweal, Crab Creek Review, Poetry Motel, and River Styx. IF YOU RETURN HOME WITH FOOD is her first full-length collection of poems.
