The poems in DAMAGED LITTLE CREATURES remind us that we can never remake ourselves entirely; we are distilled through the experiences that shape our early selves In direct and spare language, Sevick's heartrending poems achieve moments of grace and transcendence as they unravel delicate childhood memories, probe complex issues of identity, and wrestle with the impossible work of marriage and parenting.
