Open to any page of Jessica Kristie's new book of poems and you will fall under her created spell. These poems talk about life, loss, grief, meaning, pain, wisdom, and life lessons with passion in an open and honest way that still shocks me -- mesmerizing. The work is beautiful, and I hate describing anything with such a pat word. What does beautiful mean? There is a dark beauty to the language, the way Jessica places a thought, makes me see something new in an old and fading image or mindset. Wow. These aren't the school poems I grew up studying. They are new and filled with turns of phrase that had me rereading. I read a poem each night. That's just the way I like to read poetry and short story collections, since I want to picture each theme, image, character's voice as one entity before moving onto the next. Threads of Life can be read, as most poetry collections can be read, very quickly, one after another, but sparing them out over the last couple months has been enlightening, and kept me in Jessica Kristie's world, her mindset -- a very curious and fine place to be. Can't wait for the next book Kristie writes, which is rumored to be a novel. Check out her first collection of poetry as well. Equally thrilling.
