Today I had a nuclear imaging study made of my digestive tract. It involved eating a radioactive egg and then lying absolutely still on a narrow (not more than 18 inches wide) metal table (to me that would be a tall bench, but they called it a table) for an hour while the technician followed the egg through my system via the above mentioned nuclear imaging. She told me to try and relax and just sleep through the interval, but I really wasn't sleepy. I found that mentally reciting some of Richard Cronshey’s poetry very slowly not only made the experience bearable, but actually enjoyable!

"In Make Me, Jean Kane has truly surprised our common world, this world, in a moment of most candid, most innocent grammars. In these poems, language becomes new to itself and speaks the rapture of beginning."
                                                -
Donald Revell

The Possum Codex is the second installment in a Dante-inspired trilogy, following Russell's 2013 chapbook Inferna. Structured in four parts,
it’s a sort of seasonal long-poem as well as hallucinatory pilgrim’s progress undertaken in the Rust Belt landscape of the Middle West, through haunted blue-collar bars and magic circles drawn in overgrown city backyards, with the speaker of the poem bereft of a guide, left only to follow intuition and nature itself, including the sometimes supernatural animal of the title.


“Russell’s language soars and dives, and the rising and falling of so much sheer music is exhilarating. Her seemingly effortless lines are measured human breaths. They’re smart and they’re felt. Her images are well-honed blades or luxurious blankets; they startle or they comfort—depending.”
                                                        - David Clewell (review of Inferna)

In his debut collection, Sundin Richards wrings out what life’s left in our language. Here, form follows-- and often inverts-- function, so that what remains is the Whole, where ”Savages out/last savagery...” and survivors exist, as they always must in “Year Zero/ Its syllable.” The poems here engage a brave economy, and however dire things become one thing is sure: the light won’t go out.
