20 quotes from Terrance Hayes: 'I am carrying the whimper you can hear when the mouth is collapsed, the wisdom of monkeys. Ask a glass of water why it pities the rain. Ask the lunatic yard dog why it tolerates the leash. Brothers and sisters, when you spend your nights out on a limb, there’s a chance you’ll fall in your sleep. 'Trouble is one of the ways we discover the complexities Of the soul. and 'Look, the world is everywhere: satellites, end tables, the pink and white poinsettias outside the church; reunions and degrees. I am carrying the whimper you can hear when the mouth is collapsed, the wisdom of monkeys.

Keep and Give Away was selected by Terrance Hayes as the inaugural winner of the South Carolina Poetry Book Prize sponsored by the South Carolina Poetry Initiative. In her first full-length collection, Susan Meyers guides us through her examination of life's ordinary moments and the seemingly ordinary images that abide in them to reveal the extraordinary. From minutia to marriage, crumbs to crows, nothing is too commonplace to escape her attention as she traverses terrains of childhood, loss, relationships, and death. Mostly lyrical and often elegiac, the poems of Keep and Give Away move along the rifts between the past and present, the lived and desired. The dominant emotions of the verses are deepened by observations rooted in our natural world, where birds are "yeses quickening the air" and the sky can "lap you up, and up." In the book's final section, marriage poems turn to fishing and gardening for their truths, contemplations that recognize the realities of a world governed by luck, imperfection, contraries, and-most of all-love.

My first introduction to the poetry of Susan Meyers was via a telephone conversation. An "internet" friend in Columbia, SC, called me out here in Cottonwood, CA, and said, "I must share this poet's work with you!" Then she read "A Hat Made of Gold Finches" (I may have the title slightly skewed, as I've loaned my copy of the book to a friend). I ordered the book based on that one poem; I have not been disappointed. Susan Meyers takes the nature that surrounds and creates clean beauty (not always perfectly pretty, just as nature is wont to be) with honest strokes and imaginative genius. A wonderful read, start to finish, over and over again.

"Keep and Give Away" is a very pleasant surprise from a new Southern voice. The imagery is luscious and poignant simultaneously. Meyer's paints a rural landscape of growing up and living in and around South Carolina: wintering loons, koi, hats of many goldfinches, the year she banished yellow from her life, roller skating to Maria Callas, red mountains in October, water--both still and rushing, a mother-daughter dance unto death, sweetgum, Spanish moss, fishing on cool mornings, and a man named Blue.

These poems leave you wanting more, which is what an excellent book of poetry must do to succeed.

I've read this book twice, loving it more the second time. I also just finished reading Claudia Emerson's Pulitzer Prize winning "Late Wife." If you liked Emerson's "Late Wife," you'll love Meyers' "Keep and Give Away." Susan Meyers' voice and vision are strong and clear. She may be the next, great poet of the South.
