Review

“This collection draws the reader into a private world of painful introspection playing with notions of wholeness and fracture – of self-identity and relationship breakdown. The speaker reflects on an atomised existence held together by the rhythms of a ceiling fan. She is a ‘girlcreature in her shredded pinafore’ who asks ‘how can you be going when I already left’? The poetic language betrays numbness and deep pain ‘I have been a conquered world’, ‘I am not/ a syncopated being. I fall/ in and out of light’, ‘I could scramble over/ the desert rocks of this after/-life. Heartless as I was’. Honest, painful and poetic, this is a memorable collection.”

Matthew M.C. Smith, writer and editor of Black Bough Poetry.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Description

Ceiling Fan by Kari Flickinger is a unifying voice of experiences and feelings experienced by women through many relationships; the flush, the thrill, the routine, then the self-doubt, the break-up and slowly resilience,  as the hurt teaches lessons of self-discovery.
