Popa’s descriptions are brilliant for the vividness they conjure, sparkling much in the same way as Anne Carson’s writing. These brilliant descriptions painfully yet beautifully relay the darkness in our world, darkness we are largely responsible for, and the repercussions we must live with.

Poised and powerful, the poems are shot through with powerful feeling both personal and political in their restless, condensed narratives.

Each one of these poems feels like they’ve been hewn, pared down and carved from bigger works, chipped away at, like sculptures or flowers carved from radishes to produce something precise from the more haphazard nature that surrounds us.
