Praise For Life of the Bones to Come…
Life of the Bones to Come seems to implicate us all, or so many. Stories abound, the central character of each poem shifting so often that suggestions of tales emerge, especially about bodies having or just finished having sex, with varying afterthoughts. Even the specifics of the one or two locations, the bay or the lake — an old woman recently dead or the self distilled to fingerlings, to tension in a butterfly wing — are portraits of us, these bones our future when “the ‘I’ begins to be the unnecessary.” — Michael Daley
