Bone fire

Bone fire

Susan Millar DuMars

Availability: In stock

Gift wrap available

The bones are the bones of the poet - integral to the landscape of her body.

The bones are the spines of trees, the bone white of the moon. They belong to the hawk, the blackbird, the lion and the deer.

They are, too, the bones of the dead and discarded, the martyred and maimed and the simply inconvenient. They are the bones of the forgotten, who have not forgotten us. The fire is love and lust - a lover's tongue, a naked woman. It's the red stones of a canyon.

The fire is the red hair of the poet's grandfather, the blood of JFK, a warehouse burning in South Philadelphia. Most of all, the fire is destruction; a torching, a bonfire, a clearing of space for whatever comes next.
