Luckily: Poems by Kelle Groom

"Kelle Groom's exhilarating poems put human intoxicants (like love) close to hand. As they sweep a sometimes painful burden of experience along one unforeseeable line after another, they also offer a crash course in how, when forgetting's not an option, memory takes another deep breath and works like mercy."

Terri Witek

"Kelle Groom has the eye for image, the ear for music, and the finger to turn words into gold nuggets. Underwater City is a phenomenal first collection of poetry, and Luckily takes us to a higher peak.

Wang Ping

"In Kelle Groom's Luckily, tenderness transforms violence: 'A kiss on a cigarette burn." In poems both mysterious and candid, Groom captures domesticity and dream, internal and external landscapes, addiction and recovery. Groom is pitch perfect when it comes to emotional nuance. She constructs flawless images about our miraculous, vulnerable bodies. Luckily is a fierce and important book."
