- David Roderick, author of The Americans "With a voice that's intimately colloquial and unpretentiously aphoristic, the poems in Still by Logen Cure ask us what it takes to be at home in our bones and brains, in our bedrooms and mirrors. In the poem 'Sixth Street, ' which opens the collection, after puking in a bar bathroom, the speaker comes to the revelation that 'all suffering / can be bodily, ' locating loneliness and past emotional trauma within the physical body. Cure sings the human animal voracious and tries to figure out what to feed it. This collection wets its whistle on a whiskey neat but ultimately finds satiation in love and companionship."
