I Can't Talk about the Trees Without the Blood (Pitt Poetry Series) | feeld | Oceanic | American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin (Penguin Poets) | Wade in the Water: Poems | Bright Dead Things | Sharks in the Rivers
Vulnerable, tender, acute, these are serious poems, brave poems, exploring with honesty the ambiguous moment between the rapture of youth and the grace of acceptance. A daughter tends to aging parents. A woman struggles with infertilityââWhat if, instead of carrying / a child, I am supposed to carry grief?ââand a body seized by pain and vertigo as well as ecstasy. A nation convulses: âEvery song of this country / has an unsung third stanza, something brutal.â And still LimÃ³n shows us, as ever, the persistence of hunger, love, and joy, the dizzying fullness of our too-short lives. âFine then, / Iâll take it,â she writes. âIâll take it all.â
InÂ Bright Dead Things, LimÃ³n showed us a heart âgiant with power, heavy with bloodâââthe huge beating genius machine / that thinks, no, it knows, / itâs going to come in first.â In her follow-up collection, that heart is on full displayâeven asÂ The CarryingÂ continues further and deeper into the bloodstream, following the hard-won truth of what it means to live in an imperfect world.
