Every poem in Darling is radiant with glassy precision. A woman's hair is the color of raw wood, a dead friend is remembered by how he placed objects in a room, two lovers "fall together like answers". Hers are effortless metaphors that pull at your breath, and her ease in conjuring them is simply stunning.
