Words by Elline Lipkin reaching for the typewriter keys, arms and legs thin bands of want, pulled by the magic clackety clack, the something that starts inside the belly, then rolls out of the mouth.

Elline Lipkin is the third recipient of the Kore Press first book competition. Jennifer Barber was the first. Each of us believing in the myth of transformation that publication offers. Sandra Lim is the fourth. When I finished The Errant Thread, I looked at its affecting purple cover and thought of all of us artisans in a room together, at our looms, with our different voices and ages and experiences, treadles and heddles clacking, and images piling up into poems and books of poems. Each of us given that chance, and, like Lipkin, unafraid of Procne's revenge

Jen McClanaghan's poems roam across the most intimate of terrains: love, loss, and memory. They pause over the poet's personal tragedies before turning back to the world's larger calamities, never for long letting the one escape the shadow of the other

Jen McClanaghan's poems roam across the most intimate of terrains: love, loss, and memory. They pause over the poet's personal tragedies before turning back to the world's larger calamities, never for long letting the one escape the shadow of the other. RIVER LEGS is nostalgic for the prelapsarian world of two-parent households, of dogs half-asleep on the front lawn, of youth and first love. But its wistfulness is tainted by the knowledge that the world is not only fallen but even now falling. Fathers die, mothers drink themselves sick, relationships fray.

Poetry. Through the use of nuanced observation, rich language, and an original voice, Elline Lipkin explores contemporary womanhood, the concerns of travel, cross-cultural themes and family legacy. Recalling the feminist themes of Adrienne Rich, the steely resolve of Sylvia Plath, and the feeling for loss and spliced cultural heritage that Eavan Boland expresses, this work serves as the next link in a lineage of women poets. In poems such as "Response to Miss Havisham" and "Ars Poetica With Lines by Dickinson" the poet responds to her foremothers within the world of literature. Yet in poems such as "Rara Avis" and "At the Corner of Sunset and Morningside" she places herself uniquely within her own landscape, at her own desk, and in her own voice. Other poems such as "My Parents Meet at La Grande Place," or "My Grandfather's Last Bird" connect language and family as a fractured heritage, one that has allowed for "a split of words, a splice of vows," as the poet writes in "Sweet Asylum."

These poems have a remarkable way of transforming the interior worlds of their narrators into something wholly exterior, shared, and alive. Settings like Perry Street, Brussels, Paris, the Pacific Northwest, and many others shimmer and ache with longing, possibility, and vision. I love "Taking the Waters," and "My Grandfather's Last Bird: A Trio of Voices," and "Mark Morris Comments on Dance V." From the first:

"...Aquarius,

the Water Bearer, pours black sky into sky

adn the dark passes through even

the transparent glass, that lifted, offers

the dry throat, invisible and needed as hope,

a plain drink."

Elline Lipkin's new book "The Errant Thread" spans three continents. It is smart and fierce - some of it dense and sinuous, some quick and biting. ?It captures something very true about the ambivalence of being a woman at this particular historical moment - the uneasy balance of traditional expectations with one's own uncertain longings. ??There's an aching, exuberant story of a modern wanderer in here, interspersed with myth and literature, family history, and lovely tone poems that evoke the quiet of day's slide into dusk. ?I wax poetic just talking about it! ?Check it out!
