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.

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…

My father's music
Percolates and palpitates
Like hot coffee dreaming
A tap dancer's arrival
Hitting throat with the
Right note, going back,
Deep, unopposed

My father's music is
Caught in a kettle whose
Grease endured screams
And flame of gas stove
Decisions where curling irons
Bent notes and contemplated
Hooks landing on the chin and
Announcing a verdict on a
Rippled canvas

My father's music is
An empty cup of my
Favorite things where soup
Is made from pain and
Love is made from rain

My father's music is
Made in wood when he
Would then wouldn&#…
