Description

In Blossom and Bone, Nicole Lyons' third book of poetry, she unfolds alternately like wings from a chrysalis, like freshly washed bed sheets, like dirty, crumpled bed sheets, like dog-eared pages, like kept loved letters, like a tongue in a lover's mouth, like your wildest dreams. With never a wasted word, Lyons work has a hypnotic immediacy that leaves the reader breathless, as if she were in the room with them, saying; "I am standing here screaming / I live, I live, I love."

Review quote

"A beautifully crafted work of art that will punch you in the
face with its gritty realism before soothing your wounds with
elegant prose, thought provoking lines, and sublime imagery."
- Samuel Decker Thompson, author of Our Fucked Up Hearts
