Speaking of sonnets, this book taught me to love them Addonizio at her best. Tough girl poetry Edgy, insightful and understandable. The Laurie who purchased this muscular yet slim volume of poetry years ago still appreciates Addonizio s in your face confessions and imagery Addonizio and Sharon Olds, who I hear like an echo in a conch shell fueled the Laurie writing poetry through the 1980s, 90s, 00s, and even 2010s But somehow that poet has slipped deeper into the dark water The poet who currently inhabits me wants a lighter texture, a diaphanous look at the world The poet inside me now wants to escape this body rather than to celebrate it Sigh This poet feels a little old, not wise enough, and vaguely dissatisfied with the physical habitat And this poet is no longer interested, mu Presently, this book is running close to 40 used on , so unless you re a collector and maybe not even then you probably shouldn t buy it right now Wait until it gets reprinted and Kim gets the money Then again, maybe it won t get reprinted so many good books don t Read it if you can get your hands on it.Anyway, it s a good read frank and simply stated for a smart chick Full of characters that reflect people you know, or wish you did I didn t ear mark any pages probably because I paid so much for the copy And at a glance, I can t find any remarkable lines But that is no great loss here, for these are poems of people and things situations They begin with the d nouement what happens after after a photograph, after the kids grow up, after breaking up, and especially what happens after death They start at the crisis and somehow end up making us feel better by the last line.It
