"Oh I really really like Paula Cary’s chap, Sister, Blood and Bone! Its poems contain the paradox of garnets—stones for, say, jewelry but ever evoking blood. Jewels that should be pretty but end up with other significances besides decorativeness."
"I also love how some poems, while loving, are not sentimental. That’s a good enough combo, except that Cary ups the juice to actually end up in nothing less than rapture!"
"And I love how other poems make my bones wince (yes, bones, not merely flesh as the effect goes deep)—except that I’m wincing with delight. It’s that paradoxical effect—you know, you’re thinking: that’s a tad perverse and yet being highly amused."
"I am attracted to these poems for their beauty and charm, notwithstanding—or maybe, in addition to—their rather eerie facets."
