The Chemicals Between Us (Book Review)

The Wait of Atom - Jessie Carty B
Publication Date: November 2009

I discovered Jessie Carty via YouTube a couple years ago. After watching her videos and browsing her website, I recently decided to buy one of her (chap)books. It was something I’d been meaning to do for a while and I’m glad I finally did. The Wait of Atom really surprised me. For whatever reason I didn’t expect these poems to resonant with me the way they did. Furthermore, I liked the periodic table theme despite my complete oblivion about all things science.  Favorites here included: "The Wait of Atom", "House Haunting" and "Pink was the color of his weakness".  I look forward to reading more of her work.
