Crownfeathers and Effigies

Crownfeathers and Effigies by David David Bradley

by Jerry Bradley

These are quiet, intimate, witty conversational poems addressing how the human heart forgets itself under personal injury and the stinging justice of misery, and then, in the poignancy of remembering itself, is reborn again, unyielding, ready for "another waltz at the window, one more dance." If pain is "unresurrected" truth, then healing is "coming back to familiar spots to remember" a world we forgot existed or that we never even expected. Read this book and let your heart be healed.
