Carrie Lorig & Sara Woods
In their second collaborative poem-cycle (following 2013's rootpoems
), Carrie Lorig and Sara Woods explore the constellation of effects achievable with the noun "stone." A birthstone is the blood from one who vomits after being removed from a freezer; "fuck you stone, that is hard to read." Often, these permutations present a stone not as a stone but as the pouring rain, as bars, as a habit. Before disappearing, stones gush God. (Secretly, this book is also about blood).
