“It is as if the poet set fire to her earlier work and wrote these poems in the light of those flames.”—Mark Wunderlich

April Bernard explores subjects ranging from childhood anger to adult grief, from a museum of skulls to the Western movie genre. By turns playful, sorrowful, and sharp-edged, Brawl and Jag stands as Bernard’s most personal and accessible collection to date.

From “Anger”:

I always lie when I always say

I didn’t know the gun was loaded.
