What Diane Gilliam Fisher has accomplished in her collection of poems, Kettle Bottom, is rare. Hard hard stories told in the softest of voices. In the same way a whisper commands our attention when a normal voice would not, Fisher's tales stop and tempt and hold us.
I don't believe poetry books are to be read in one sitting. It is hard for me to digest them all. I read. I absorb. I read. I absorb. But with Fisher's book, I find it hard to wait. I have to pick it up again, and listen to the next whisper.
