Praise for Lightsey Darst:
“This is a vital poetry of the Deep South ripe with bones, blood and bogs, Snow Whites, Gretels and debutantes all stirred into a harrowing stew of lust, dusk and summer.” —New York Times
“A terrific collection. … Full of horror, bleak humor, and suspense, these poems read like mini-thrillers, daring you to put the book down.” — Entertainment Weekly
Desire & the page felt it.
I told myself, something is happening.
You could make weather happen then.
Dear not only in dream life, dear never until storm.
