The Death Spiral, a collection of poems by Sarah Giragosian, has just been released by Black Lawrence Press.
April Ossmann, author of Event Boundaries, notes:
Giragosian’s fierce, gorgeous poems embody our role as one in body and mind with other peoples, plants and animals—living and extinct—arguing a familial connection integral to the survival of species including our own: “he is a thrashing turtle/on a bone hook, speaking from otherwhere/of his apartness. I point to hearth, to kin…” These poems hope we won’t find ourselves with, “Nothing left on Earth to love or fear,” as they invoke the beauty around us, and in us.
