June 25, 2017 – Olena Kalytiak Davis

This is another book I was assigned to read during my MFA program. I had to go through this one a couple of times because it definitely requires a slow read. I can best describe the poems as “thick” filled with so many things to take into account while reading them. I intend to tackle this book several more times.

march licked me with all his brown lack
 
as if
someone just handed me
a bouquet
made solely,
entirely,
of the absence
of the word:
Abundance.
Thereby hand-
ing me
everything!
 
O, to Lack!
 
I too am made
(mostwholey) of that.
