Jyoti Roy reviews BEAST in the summer 2012 issue of Calyx (Vol. 27 no.2) !
“Despite their lyrical beauty, her poems are brutal, almost hopeless in their assessment of our environment and humanity’s place on earth. Yet redemption comes through the very act of shaping language, observing nature, and the crafting of beautiful pieces out of horror. While the situations described may make humanity seem insane, our instinct for life is our saving grace: The road’s yellow stitch hems me to earth/ fragile as a swatch of sun, but enough to keep me driving. (“Airport Poem”)”
