Damaged Little Creatures

FutureCycle Press | 2015

“Leona Sevick writes stunning, subtle poems of perfect music and magic. They carry us quickly and cleanly behind the clutter of visible worlds into deep centers of presence and being. This is a book to love.”

–Naomi Shihab Nye, author of Transfer

The poems in Damaged Little Creatures remind us that we can never remake ourselves entirely; we are distilled through the experiences that shape our early selves. The poems in this collection unravel delicate childhood memories, probe complex issues of identity, and wrestle with the impossible work of marriage and parenting.
