Teresa Sutton, They’re Gone (Finishing Line Press)

“Teresa Sutton’s poems are haunted; lost brothers, months apart, lost mother, soon after. Like Emerson with his wife, in her closing poem, Sutton’s poems, with their straight-to-the-point music of plain speech, visits them daily, digs them up, perhaps to see if they are really dead, perhaps to touch them again, perhaps to test the relationship of the soul to the world. We close this book, carry our dead with hers.”

-- Cornelius Eady
