Summary
"A striking, shapeshifting volume from "one of the most fascinating female poets of our time" (BOMB). Inspired by her encounter with Dr. Chevalier Jackson's collection of ingested curiosities at Philadelphia's Mütter Museum, Kimiko Hahn's tenth collection investigates the grip that seemingly insignificant objects exert on our lives. From fossilized remains to the heartbreaking detritus of her family home to her long-dead mother's Japanese jewelry, these poems movingly explore the relationship between our innermost selves and the relics of our vanished past. Foreign Bodies investigates the power of possession, replete with Hahn's singular Japanese- inflected sensibility and thrilling mastery of ever-changing forms. From "A Dusting" How ever Mother has reappeared - say, as motes on a feather duster- scientists say the galaxy was created thus. This daybreak she seeds a cumulus cloud"--
