The Wingless
     

The Wingless

by Cecilia Llompart
 
Here is poetry of subtlety and scale: it’s a record in equal measure of the sweeping and of the small. We are given a view of the world through a time-lapse camera, a pair of binoculars, a glass-bottomed boat, and we are made to see the movement in what we thought was stillness.

What People are Saying About This

Bob Hicok
“A little smoky and mysterious, Cecilia Llompart’s work is lean but full—maximally minimal. Everything her mind touches seems more mystical, more alive. Her poems convey a gratitude, a joy less stated than implied by currents of appetite and love, romantic love and a great wide love of it all.”
