The poems in Riddle Fishhook Thorn Key invite readers to encounter what doesn’t stay still. The longing here is not only to see things—the bones of a whale, a forgotten handkerchief, muddy horses in a field, a forsaken boy on an empty playground—but to inhabit them, to enter the well of other lungs, to go into the throat of a land [we] didn’t know. These poems search for ways to belong in the world, and as they do, even the fleeting and uncertain become illuminated—and intimate.
