THE BRANCHES, THE AXE, THE MISSING is a “is a powerful, dynamic work”

The good folks over at The Rumpus recently reviewed Charlotte Pence’s prizewinning poetry chapbook The Branches, The Axe, The Missing, writing “The language here is staccato and luminous, sonically and metaphorically reflecting the first intimations of community, of humanity encircling fire to feed and protect itself. Playful and rich, the language shifts again into the relatively prose-like, in which objective information is aestheticized, made poetry.” We agree–this chapbook is exceptional!
