Poetry. "Anyone who still wants to view experimentation as a purely intellectual exercise will be convinced otherwise by Donna de la Perriere's exquisite second collection. Under the threat or promise of erasure and at the edge of silence, the poet deftly leads us through a shifting, minimalist landscape. Wrestling with change and stasis, with the resistance and sudden give of the real, she delicately monitors each stage of what feels like a pilgrimage, while defamiliarization pressures vision and makes each breath at once artful and endlessly brave. SAINT ERASURE saves us by exposing the beauty of our vulnerability: 'Welcome to the new body / tonight we lose everything.'" Laura Mullen.
