Recommendations,  Required Reading

Wednesday Words

Renamed. Reworked. Same basic premise as the “Required Readings” I was doing before.

I recently wrote a review of Sue Sinclair’s Heaven’s Thieves, and I still find myself thinking about it almost daily.


The shoddy balconies,
sliding glass panels,
reflected swirl
of leaves.
Why does everything
that appears in glass
look like a face?
The mirror-trees stand half
in this world and half somewhere else,
a place not necessarily better than this one
but faraway
and therefore enviable.

— from Heaven’s Thieves (Brick Books, 2017)
