The Unordering of Days, by Jessica Palmer
In The Unordering of Days, Jessica Palmer pushes through grief to explore the language of rejection. With explosive honesty, she works to reconcile the heart and the mind, moving from silence to agency as she confronts the consequences of interrupting an undisturbed life. Integrating physics and faith, Appalachia and the cosmos, Palmer’s brief collection of poems embraces a universe that is beautiful in its ambiguity. Terrifying in its loneliness. And wondrous in its bewilderment.
