Poetry. "Like all magnificent poets, Maryrose Larkin sheds new light on commonly overlooked particulars: a dictionary, weather reports, 'the tongue flowering.' Between 'theories and waking life' she reveals a vantage beyond duality, where all words contain their opposites and the division between inner and outer is fluid. Larkin's page is an everchanging surface or layered 'lung sky scalloped.' In her work the found is made intimate, and this stirring, exacting book seems to breathe along with the reader"—Laynie Browne.

Her most recent project, Speaking Buildings, transects the constraints of windows and history.Author City: PORTLAND, OR USA
