Acquainted with the Cold

by Lexa Hillyer

Restless and exhilarating, Lexa Hillyer’s inaugural collection spins headlong into a rush of sound and image, revealing the possibilities hidden beneath a thin layer of ice or snow. Acquainted with the Cold, winner of the 2011 Melissa Lanitis Gregory Poetry Prize, begins with a seduction and ends with a call: Barred owl, I m ready./Convince me of eternity. Through her poems, Hillyer invites the reader to live more fully, to delve into the wild possibilities open to us all.
