Family was a whitewashed, / milk-toothed word / that couldna€™t account for the mother / who wept and burnt / the roast if the floor was dirtya€“ / or if it was Tuesday, or there were clouds. Written in an eloquent and searingly honest voice, these poems address the pain and pleasure of growing up. Courtney Queeney tells intense emotional truths in poetry that is at once personal and universal. She exposes the rawness of a complicated relationship with her mothera€“She mothered the disorder in me, / this difficulty getting out of bed / and dressing like a real human adult, / trying not to be her daughtera€“and her attitude toward love expresses both profound longing and erotic dissonance: I translate love from the hush of a hung-up phone / before a body comes to engage me for an hour. And Queeney writes with humor and self-doubt of the conflict between desire and the quest to remain true to oneselfa€“I will fly around the world on an airplane until I arrive at calm. / I will spend my days suspended in air, manufacturing a closure.
