PRAISE FOR LETTERS TO PETRARCH
"Even as this speaker navigates the acute suffering of a love lost, she does so with a precise hand. It is clear Cure has crafted these poems with attention to each detail, each word, each broken line and empty space. It is the poet's steadiness, her delicate, measured spareness, that allows us to enter and invites us to share the speaker's experience, which is ultimately not just one of loneliness, but of calling out. This is a tender exploration of what it means to be transformed by grief."
