My editor for my second book suggested Andrea Cohen's poetry to me and I loved it! Andrea's use of language creates exciting and fresh images. The work is so evocative. Andrea uses an unusual word, and a concrete new reality is formed, which is the launching point for what comes next. I'm looking forward to reading more from her. Buy Unfathoming here.
It's a puzzle. / Make piles of blue, // of black, of rain. / Let the pieces // sift together: it / only looks like ruin.
We say / that: still // life, the way / we say stay // to the dog / already gone.
Not an absence / of blackbirds // singing, but / an abundance // of blackbirds / listening.
