“Everyone talking over each other—radios tuned to different stations.”
There are no bows in this collection. Lauren Gilmore gives readers poems that grapple with life's loose ends. Outdancing the Universe is for those who “have always slept best between mile markers.” She chronicles how illusory “home” can often be, and the quiet frustration that comes from seeking it. Gilmore welcomes you to the human race—“the only species masochistic enough / to keep track of time.”
