These centos, imitations, and found poems scavenge truths by lifting telling phrases overheard in cafes and bars, glimpsed on Facebook, or recalled from childhood and adult encounters. They are at turns heart-wrenching, painful, and humorous. From the poet Ellen Bass, Susie Berg has learned the art of the heart-twist and how to reveal underlying anxieties, the deeper currents in the blood that flow beneath our dailiness. - Berg delivers an unsettling yet cohesive collection.

Susie Berg's All This Blood burns brilliantly with arresting sensorial language and images steeped in life's great unfolding and memorable moments. Berg's well-crafted potent lines are salient, and reaffirm these diurnal instances ushering in the cogent understanding recollection brings. All This Blood folds us into Berg's cyclic experiences, and we instantly see and feel the dynamic wonder of common humanity on display.
