Bone Tongue: A Collection of Poetry

Availability: Ready to download

Bone Tongue is the anatomy of the sharpest rose. It is sculpted from each petal's sleeping body. This is a collection of diary entries from the poet when she was suffering from severe clinical depression and it gathers the repetition of every ache into a filigree of poems. Maybe these aren't even poems, Maybe each page carries a cult of foxes gathered around a fire waiting Bone Tongue is the anatomy of the sharpest rose. It is sculpted from each petal's sleeping body. This is a collection of diary entries from the poet when she was suffering from severe clinical depression and it gathers the repetition of every ache into a filigree of poems. Maybe these aren't even poems, Maybe each page carries a cult of foxes gathered around a fire waiting for the midnight to fall. Maybe it is a single hour caught in the butterfly effect. Maybe it is the distance between death and dreaming. The tongue has calcified the way a mind makes a relic out of every memory. Days are chiselled into verses that get carved onto this hard-shelled tabula rasa. It is a constellation of cicatrices. It screams. It kicks its own cure. It walks like a war song - naked, bloody & glowing.

    Siobhan first caught my eye as a talented poet on Tumblr. She is a fearless wordsmith. While Siobhan unearths nouns and adjectives from the depths of the dictionary, weaving them into thoughtful metaphors, she also deftly handles more common words: then you are in a cab and the city is a cinema of gradually dying candles, traffic lights wink their impending mischief - "day 46: between atlas and earth" sun thawing into himalayan honey behind the caravan of clouds. - "day 50: hope is a four lettered wor Siobhan first caught my eye as a talented poet on Tumblr. She is a fearless wordsmith. While Siobhan unearths nouns and adjectives from the depths of the dictionary, weaving them into thoughtful metaphors, she also deftly handles more common words: then you are in a cab and the city is a cinema of gradually dying candles, traffic lights wink their impending mischief - "day 46: between atlas and earth" sun thawing into himalayan honey behind the caravan of clouds. - "day 50: hope is a four lettered word" you will take a pair of craft scissors to your hair; cut away the wings woven into your tresses so you can forget the etiquette of flying. - "day 13: what you won't let them do" (a stand-out poem) I will say that this volume of poetry didn't give me the same feeling of raw emotion that I gleaned from Siobhan's Tumblr. It felt more calculated, more cerebral, and I suspect that that enervated its staying power. Despite that, her mastery of words is undeniable; she remains one of my favorite contemporary poets, next to nayirrah waheed and Richard Siken.

    Siobhan is an incredible writer. Sophisticated without being inaccessible, this is a collection you will want to read more than once, taking note of sequence and timeline in this tapestry rich with allusion, conjuring places in the mind exotic but real. Each stanza drips vivid vocabulary with meaning both cosmic and mundane.
