Of Fractured Clocks, Bones and Windshields
Sheela Sitaram Free
Cati Porter, editor of Poemeleon:
A Journal of Poetry, and
In her poem, "And so the Stupid Critic Said," Sheela Free exhorts us to "Write 'till the marrow in your bones /sucks its way into your words." It is clear that this is how Free herself writes - each poem in this collection buzzes with the stuff of life in all its pain and joy, each word extracted from the very center of her being. These poems are deeply personal and political, honest and visionary, all at once - poems that stand up and say "I STILL AM" even after the most unimaginable loss. Sheela Free reminds us of the courage that's needed if we want to call ourselves truly free.
