In "Every Possible Thing," Karen Poppy's imagery soars and her unique vision leads us into a world of literary allusions, of life's glory, of the earth, of water and waves, of suicide and the harshness of life and death. Exquisitely written, with attention to the smallest detail, to the vastness of mythology, these elegant poems compel the reader to turn the page in order to be richly rewarded by these tender pieces. Haunting, bewitching, evocative, her poems are often other-worldly. In the title poem, hands become "Silver-skinned gloves" and the speaker urges the beloved to "Wear me like finery." These are poems of the heart-breaking beauty of landscape where no subject is too small, such as the creation of a grain of sand. Her soaring imagery and unique vision propel the reader along, gorgeous poem following gorgeous poem. Skillfully written, always engaging, we need Poppy's poems of discovery, philosophy, other worlds, spirit, and more.
