What We're Reading:

Impact Services Manager Jolene Brink recently read 'Pyramid Scheme' by Hera Lindsay Bird.

I want poems with subtle complexity. I want poems so aware of themselves, their lack of sentiment becomes honesty and their honesty opens up the interrogation that started the engine of the poem in the first place. I was so startled when I actually found that in Bird’s poem, I went straight to my local bookstore and ordered her book. I say that not to endorse her poem, but to endorse the art of finding poetry that speaks to you and supporting whoever put it into the world.

But Macdonald’s descriptions of loss and birds soar, and I’m finding it to be an achingly lovely story of grief and progress.
