"Relentless Reality"and
"Contemplating Continuing as a Crip"
In "Relentless Reality", I review Domestic Bodies, Jennifer Ruth Jackson's debut poetry collection published by Querencia Press in February.

A collection of very short poems, Domestic Bodies explores living as a crip in a world designed to prevent our access to shopping, government, education, events, travel, life. If you or a loved one face a cancer diagnosis, if you grieve the loss of a parent or relationship, if you live with disabilities, look for solace in the pages of this collection.

Whale Road Review, "A Journal of Poetry & Short Prose", includes my review, and my first contrapuntal poem, "Contemplating Continuing as a Crip" in the Summer 2024 issue.
