Bennett has found a new shape for the poem—a rolling series that
builds over several pages to a quiet crescendo. This is a book that
plumbs the quiet—with quiet insistence. Each sequence stakes out a
distinct concern—the body, the city, the house. Each one puts us at
a cross-hairs—of being and place, of being and history, of being and
birds. Using emotion as an exploratory tool, she reaches the fragile
edges of everyday thought and goes a step beyond, giving everyday
things a second life—doors, stairs, skies. It’s a life lived in
her poems alone, but it makes these things glow in the daily world as
well. This book is an exquisite and promising debut .
