Lost Letters and Other Animals

by Carrie Bennett

In Lost Letters and Other Animals Carrie Bennett explores what words can and cannot express. Animals abound—birds sing and stop singing, dogs breathe and stop breathing, deer appear and disappear. All along the human brainbox records, remembers, and then forgets. In five long fragmented poems, we put together a collage that is a meditation on the eternal tension between beauty and truth. Bennett’s touch is light but cuts deeply into the impermanence that marks our lives. A beautiful collection.

—Barbara Hamby
