WHAT HAVE I DONE? by Carrie Close
In What Have I Done? Carrie Close writes, “all these little birds keep picking at me/hard, determined beaks peck through skin, scrape/against bone—they dance and chirp ominous tones…” The connection Close builds between themes of love, motherhood, and relationships hits you in the face like a taut rubber band forcing you to zero in on every last detail. Close pens a charged, feminist collection that avoids polishing for the sake of looking good.
