Poetry. "Sunnylyn Thibodeaux's poems conjure up the wonder of dreams, drifting, spontaneous, obeying their own logic. There is no distinction between thought and feeling, what is seen or not seen, heard or not heard, experienced or imagined. A heightened awareness and responsiveness towards the world, triumph. The unexpected shifts and turns are seamless, and essential. Hers is a musician's ear and she works her vowels and consonants for all they are worth. Read these poems backwards and they're just as good."—Joseph Torra
"In this world of missed signals, disruptive lost daydreams, and potentially failing hellos, poetry is the thing that allows us to keep going by "stitching the notes" of sound and time together. I love the idea that we are, at our best, "salvaged," and these innovatively lyrical poems for way they give music the upper hand. AS WATER SOUNDS is a gorgeous book that charts the vulnerability of the senses and the courage of relation in a poetry that meditates while it raises the dead."—Karen Weiser
