Poet Erica Dawson explores lust and love, past and present, accidents, and the ache of plans gone wrong. In this episode she reads from her new collection, The Small Blades Hurt.
What reviews are saying:
“Headlong, stitched-together, strung out over imaginative rhymes that her sentences rarely have time to acknowledge, many of her poems have the prolonged marvel of Wile E. Coyote running out past the edge of the cliff. They’re at once superb performances and portraits of the terrible depths of air they hope to ignore.”
“A testament to Dawson’s uncanny wit and deft powers of inference and emphasis, unflinching assessments of how we define—then redefine and redefine—ourselves and the world around us.”
