Poetry. "Kate Colby's BEAUPORT opens windows framing history framing natural and unnatural settings (traffic, waves, skylines, sky). The work presents a series of displacements, smoke and mirror memory experiments, stitching together with anachronism the physical and the metaphysical. This is a fascinating book, composing and collapsing (wing, telescope), foregrounding subject, object and sightlines in between. With its architecture of vignettes, lullabies, hymns and fragments, Colby's BEAUPORT constructs resistances, ever confronting its considered grace and precision in ripples of savory humors" Norma Cole.
