By Méira Cook

Shortlisted for the 2012 Aqua Lansdowne Prize for Poetry

A attention-grabbing, ambling, loitering secret tale in verse, a whoizzit instead of a whodunit.

In this cutting edge and arresting narrative poem, Méira Cook's walker, a tender girl, is a personality being written through an "old urban poet," who's in flip being written via one other poet, for whom the younger girl, "Ms. Em Cook," has been an amanuensis. consistently witty and infrequently hilarious, feather-light in contact, the publication is an interesting exploration of great matters: early life and age; lifestyles, loss of life and rebirth; the (dis)connection of language and fact; culture and the now. it really is an assemblage of 7 nesting sections, every one of them a kind of chapbook chatting with all of the others and rounding out an extended poem of significant freshness. A Walker within the urban is extraordinary, the most unique books Brick has ever published.

The Persistence of Longing

Named a finalist for the Northern California Book Award in Poetry as the most effective works via a northern California poet released in 2016I love those poems, love how they sweep me alongside, sweep me up into the hands of the type of longing that turns out unsayable, untranslatable, very unlikely to explain in any language, with any words—the phrases turning again into breath, as this poet says, as she creates the feel of that longing, itself, in phrases, in those sometimes-breathless strains, occasionally opposed to the restraint of shape, the candy soreness of rhyme, creating that experience of urgency that’s so like hope, itself, and the feel of hazard that infuses even the private excitement, specially the inner most excitement.
