Victoria recommends! Featuring "Good Bones" --called "Official Poem of 2016" by the BBC/Public Radio International. Maggie Smith writes out of the experience of motherhood, inspired by watching her own children read the world like a book they've just opened, knowing nothing of the characters or plot. These are poems that stare down darkness while cultivating and sustaining possibility, poems that have a sense of moral gravitas, personal urgency, and the ability to address a larger world.
By Maggie Smith. Paperback. 112 pages. Published by Tupelo Press, 2017.
