Poetry. Michael Chitwood's seventh collection of poems is tremendously varied in shape and pace, from terse, reflexive aphorisms to rangy narratives. "No book about happiness has made me half as happy as I was made by POOR-MOUTH JUBILEE, Michael Chitwood's sublime book about sorrow.

Chitwood's Poor-Mouth Jubilee is a book of prayers in time of sorrow. But it's also passionately affirming: "The light, yes the light was yellow and moved in the understory, a love-struck girl." Here is poetry tender and exact, like the feather against which the heart shall be weighed. In this book, the heart clearly wins.

Poor Mouth Jubilee speaks to me in languages I have always known and long ago forgot. Like reading through the journals of an old friend who knew I'd find myself here, these poems revel almost as playfully as a child in a storm, or a storm of butterflies, in their own surprise, and somewhat in the anticipation of my equal and devoted relief. I needed this book in me, and I can't reread it slowly enough. This is five stars. I I gave it any more, I would have to stop reading altogether.
