BrommelYou can’t explain to friends from home how the desert makes it better, but you try:Imagine a heat so dry that it presses down into the earth, releasing its scent so that it takes on the comforting smell of clay pots in your grandmother’s kitchen when you were a child, or your hideout under the evergreens where you used to sit for hours smelling only the dirt, the sap, the pine.

Imagine a smell that reminds you of the kitchen on holidays: sage, rosemary, and something you chase that is reminiscent of honey, but feels like love.

Some people still fight it. They call the he…

Susana reads from her book: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIyObZ_PToo

http://broadstonebooks.com/Susana_H_Case.html
The poems in this collection are inspired by the ways in which gender (and sometimes other divisions) creates opportunities for both victimization and survival. A theme woven throughout is the tension between being objectified and being human. There are three sections. The first section is organized around the idea of the stereotype of the living doll, and rebellion against that concept. The middle section, an ekphrastic section, is inspired by the life and the nutshell studies, crime model constructions, of Frances Glessner Lee, "mother of modern forensics," and includes some black and white images that are in the public domain. The third section, which includes the title poem, focuses more fully on the negative effects of objectified existences.

Bio: Susana H. Case is the author of seven books of po…

and their crooked hole of a mouth
screaming anguished into the air above
will become my next breath.
We will share the same chorus of pain,
the secret song that unites us all,
a universal refrain that asks us to
bless this world for its suffering
for it’s the only thing that builds the bridge of empathy. Selected by Muddy River Poetry Review, Spring 2020

---------------------------------- Shell
Holding the shell of the man he used to be to my ear,
his tidal voice crashed ashore,
calling me to watch a nest of turtles
break free from their sandy womb, frantic
to fin…
