The Game of Boxes: Poems
These lucid, nuanced poems implore us to "marvel at
the visible." Children try to understand the "mystery" of
growing older and a handsome pharmacist prescribes a lonely woman the moon as a
kind of balm. In the process, Barnett reveals the happiness that exists
despite—and alongside—the inevitability of loss.
"Welcome, traveler!" she writes. "You might as well stay a while
and kneel to happiness."
