"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

Today I’m building myself/from the bones/of flowers”~Mary Carroll-Hackett

Make art about the self as a seed, a growing thing requiring nurturing, a blossom.

(from a poem that originally appeared in Tar River Poetry, one that will be my book coming out this spring, A Little Blood, A Little Rain, forthcoming from FutureCycle Press).
