 Woods’ poems are adventurous, hopeful; they seem to say what we always meant to say, tell stories we wish we’d told, finish our sentences or long-lost thoughts. Each poem’s final lines are balanced on a fine blade, tilting in our minds long after we’ve finished reading. What I love most about the poems here is the way Woods manages to leave a light on for every reader, keeps each of these small narratives open to the connection between herself and every person she meets through her poetry. I want to read her next book, soon.
