9781882295623: Take What You Want

The earthy, intelligent poems in this compelling debut employ elements of fairy tale, dream, and animal life to reveal little-addressed aspects of familial and sexual love and of motherhood, bringing sharply into focus the often inexplicable ties of one individual to another.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

From “Physics”:

. . . His hand tangles in my hair
as the train passes,
and in that blur of sound and light
things are settled by a force
outside ourselves,
as we had hoped would happen.
In the afternoon,
the green plums hang invisible
on the green tree. At night they glow
with a powdery green light
of their own—
sour enough to last a while,
sour enough, surely.
