Bottle Gentian

This August, understand what never opens. You thought you knew about blooming, about ditches lavish with daylilies. But these five fused petals live on refusal, clamped shut like a mailbox hoarding its letters. Each year the river shifts, the old spruce—tindery, brittle—comes closer to falling in. Still, there are days you love it all, not […]

I'm amazed by the way these poems, mostly brief, manage to convey such intimacy and emotional complexity in such small spaces. Every word feels just right, and at the same time the poems have an ease to them, a sense of seamlessness. They are beautif ...more

A magical book, totally unlike anything else I've ever read. The setting of these haunting stories - Newark, NJ - is as much a character, as alive and breathing, as any of the humans that inhabit it. Though the humans are fully real as well, complex ...more

Mysterious and beautiful--the way these poems are organized on the page makes them feel full of air and breath and silence. Some--especially a few early on in the book--seem absolutely perfect to me. Others I couldn't quite find my way into... but th ...more

A lucky find at Diesel Books in Oakland (thank you, Bay Area, for producing excellent poets, and valuing poetry as much as you do). These are weird (in a really really good way), funny, surprising... and I love the way she blends the small and everyd ...more

Franz Kafka
“A book must be the axe for the frozen sea within us.”
Franz Kafka

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Perhaps all the dragons in our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us act, just once, with beauty and courage. Perhaps everything that frightens us is, in its deepest essence, something helpless that wants our love.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Rainer Maria Rilke
“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

Annie Dillard
“Similarly, the impulse to keep to yourself what you have learned is not only shameful, it is destructive. Anything you do not give freely and abundantly becomes lost to you. You open your safe and find ashes.”
Annie Dillard, The Writing Life

Annie Dillard
“She read books as one would breathe air, to fill up and live.”
Annie Dillard, The Living
