Sealey is also experimemting with poetic form in this collection. Not only does it contain some wonderfully crafted sonnets and a gorgeous cento, but there are times when she recalls aspects of previous pieces later in the collection, like “Clue”/“C ue” and the “Candellabra With Heads” pieces.
A highly innovative and expertly executed collection.
