"This work is unlike any other, in its range of rich, conjuring imagery and its dexterity, its smart voice. Carroll-Hackett doesn’t spare us—but doesn’t save us—she draws a blueprint of power and class with her unflinching pivot: matter-of-fact and tender." —Jan Beatty

Happy National Poetry Month! The first collected works I ever owned, my mama gave it to me for my twelfth birthday, was William Carlos Williams. The spare and earthshaking power of a single image–in his hand, it was miraculous. 

Between Walls

 

the back wings
of the

 

hospital where
nothing

 

will grow lie
cinders

 

in which shine
the broken

 

pieces of a green
bottle

 

Make art about walls. 

broken green bottle
