A first collection of poems from the winner of the Cuffer Prize for short fiction
Our Gleaming Bones Unrobed is a haunting debut, a poetry collection thematically focused on discovering the structure (the figurative bones) beneath the appearance (or skin) of a situation.
This poetry is at once memento mori — a reminder and celebration of our mortality — and a lyrical exploration of the spirituality of the mundane, the possibility for revelation found in the commonplace.
The universe’s heart is a ruined house.
Written on the door is this:
you cannot do a thing that has not already been done.
– from “On the Occasion of a Book Burning”
