Overview

Sarah Vap, award-winning author of Dummy Fire and American Spikenard, dazzles again with this third collection. Vap celebrates the mysteries of pregnancy with wonder, fear, sorrow, and joy. Like counting the beads on a rosary, she takes us along a trail of connected couplets, building a concrete yet mythic exploration of the body as it prepares to bring another body into the world. Alice Notley writes, “This is a poetry of light, edge, and coherence, and it is beautiful.” And Cynthia Hogue adds, “I am in awe of the rare beauty of these poems.”
