From the first poem "Red-Eared Slider" through to the final "All the Hours the Night Has Left," Drexler weaves a tapestry of love, loss, grief, and acceptance-an elaborate kaddish in which she celebrates and sanctifies the names of the things, events, and persons she remembers. Notes from the Column of Memory is a much needed collection that will underscore for every reader the need to document, accept, and sing the hardships, the sorrows, and joys we are all born to-bound to. This is one of the most moving offerings of poetry I have read in a long time. And, for me, the experience of reading it is captured in one of the volumes many memorable lines: it is . . . a hustle of tart and sweet so sharp it hurt.
