Crow MerciesBook - 2010
Poetry. Crows are loud and insistent. They are smart and relentless. They are not easily tricked. Instead, they play tricks. The mercy they practice is a measured mercy. They are not mean but they are clear-sighted. They see a long distance backwards and forwards. They are dark but shining. Likewise, the poems in CROW MERCIES survey large territories, sometimes with an overview, sometimes close-at-claw. Winner of the first Sarah Lantz Memorial Poetry Prize (from CALYX Books), poet Penelope Scambly Schott draws on myriad experiences to bring herself and the reader into a deeper and far-reaching connection to the world.
