Were There Gazelle by Laura McRae

| /
The speaker in Laura K. McRae's debut poetry collection, Were There Gazelle, has travelled long and hard, wide open to the world. The poems explore how moments can become fixed points in our memory, and how the senses and the strangeness of travel can awaken us to links between past and present, place and time. "There is no shelter in folklore," McRae writes, "we taste what is to come/ in what once was. [M]oments scour our passage, / clear it of debris--/human discourse and rot--a few shining pebbles/ left to bruise our feet."
