PSS008 - Jessica O. Marsh - Our Names in Circulation
This first chapbook by Jessica O. Marsh feels deeply personal, yet reaches to universal circumferences. Circles are drawn and worlds intersect. The poems oscillate between a chamber of immediate circumstances – yards, rooms, inches, touch’s vicinity – and that of a populated whole, riddled with holes. Names heard, remembered, forgotten, recalled. The body, here, transforms. Marsh is aware of how the body is constantly made and unmade by condition. It is both the object and subject. The thing that becomes and makes. The mouth and its echo. The circle which draws itself, and around itself tries to draw its limit. When we are called, what we will we be called, and by whose how?
