"A most inquisitive poet who relishes living inside her expansive vocabulary."C.D. Wright
A web of wholly original madhattery, Flemish showcases serious language play and the skill of a master craftsperson. Caroline Knox is writing at the top of her game, and reading her is a pleasure not to be missed.
Our font is full of construction-
paper fish, made by
the church school for us to
each take home one of,
a reverse tithe.
Caroline Knox is the recipient of numerous awards and has been a visiting fellow at Harvard University.
