RABBIT RABBIT Kerrin P. Sharpe he gave him the lungs to open the hands of
fields and walk through an alphabet of rabbits the train kept my son breathing
In her third collection, Kerrin P. Sharpe writes about trespass and return, the
homelessness of flight, and anatomies both human and object. Her poems take the
form of oblique, sometimes tragic, always powerful vignettes. These are poems
that are brilliantly restless in time and place."
