From the Inside Quietly – poetry – Eloisa Amezcua


From the Inside Quietly
poems – Eloisa Amezcua
Shelterbelt Press, 2018


Eloisa Amezcua’s From the Inside Quietly has a voice that asks its hearer to articulate what is missing from readers elsewhere. I don’t know how to prove it. Does beauty know beauty is a shortcut? From text messages to auto correct, from theoretically falling cats to the dry worship of things relayed with no inflection, Amezcua collects communique to salvage the non-dueling songs of hurt and heal while acknowledging with soul how being has to suffer the body’s abridgement. If often formed from the nervously present, the work also makes itself correctly scarce as a medium that brings its own ghost.
