Reviews

"I loved being held by Bright Specimen's gentle intimacy and delight, its organic shapes and speech. Reading this book feels like entering a sunlit room of clear-voiced women, where 'suddenly it seems possible / no harm will come to anyone.'What could be so fragile and unafraid as an herbarium flower? Only a poet as attuned as Julie Poole could filter the world through such bright souls."----Taisia Kitaiskaia, author ofThe Nightgown and Other Poems
