The Lily Book
by Valerie Coulton, winner of the 2004 MRBA
"Written in lyrical shreds, each page is complete unto itself. The Lily Book's textures, suggestiveness, and physicality are remarkable, but the lyric is given further authority by an interruptive method that introduces uncertainty and inconclusion. In this way, Valerie Coulton brings into agreement the lyrical and the experimental"
Valerie Coulton's poems have appeared in 26, A Magazine of Paragraphs, Barnabe Mountain Review, Chase Park, Coracle, Fourteen Hills, syllogism, and Volt. She is also the author of Passing World Pictures, also available at SPD.
