Rachel Contreni Flynn. Flynn has crafted a book full of wilderness, mystery, magic, as her poems confront time and again the myths and memories of childhood and ask us to name what nourishes, changes, sustains, and saves us. Sensuous, inventive and startling images cohere into narrative: here, anger is a piano, God is a Matchbox car, loyalty is a wild pig. At its essence, Tongue is about the unending complexity and sheer stubbornness of love: so difficult, so generous, so fabulous.
