Michele Glazer’s second book, Aggregate of Disturbances, makes us take a closer look, a deeper breath. Reading her poems is something like eating peanut butter straight out of the jar. These poems emit a viscous music.
Through the poems in this book, Glazer delves into the stuff of elegy–death, dying, love, loss, and grieving. The eye of these poems operates with great thrum, noting the grit of reality. The poems recognize the failure that living brings on us and the jitteriness of our attempts to adhere to one another.
