Poetry. The poems in FEVER AND BONE meditate on the bright and bitter moments that make up the human experience of time. Poems written during the first year of the pandemic embody the writer's awareness of temporality, contagion and mortality—of bodies, the social fabric, and the natural world. These poems, as well as the collection as a whole, reflect on intimate connections between the interior and exterior: there is no sick self apart from an ailing world, no healing apart from a keen recognition of beauty as it flares and entices us, even at the extremity. FEVER AND BONE is Alexander's second publication with Dos Madres Press.
