by Kimberly Lambright
paperback, 69 pages
Artful and wry, smart and moving—Kimberly Lambright's poems are made of such carefully rendered moments that the mundane becomes very wonderfully strange. Ultra-Cabin is a book that will knock you out and invite you in, sometimes in the same brilliant breath.
I am stunned by Kimberly Lambright's verbal acuity, its lightning shifts and sudden, diamond-like stillnesses. And there are images in this book that would wake Breton from the dead. Hats off to this uniquely adventurous and mature first volume.
Emotive and cerebral, giving way to the surrealities of intuition and pushing back with a keen intelligence.
