Book of the Week (1/13/2020)

Brightword by Kimberly Burwick (Pittsburgh, PA : Carnegie Mellon University Press, 2019).

Meriden, New Hampshire poet Kimberly Burwick has published her fifth collection of poetry titled, "Brightword".
"Brightword, [is] a stunning lyric meditation forged under the threat of child-loss. In the poems in Brightword the speaker, a mother, contemplates the microcosm and macrocosm of dissection. Physically, her son is at constant risk of a life-threatening cardiac event. Environmentally, her son is obsessed with nature and the threat of eco-catastrophes. Through lyric exchange, images become the principal of repose." --Gibson's website
