The winner of the Bright Hill Press 2007 Chapbook Competition, selected by Martin Mitchell, poetry editor of BigCityLit, and Bertha Rogers, Editor in Chief, Bright Hill Press, HAYWIRE is a book about history and hunger, a startled kind of anger as its poems move from fear to contentment, always vigilant of the possibility of loss. There is delicacy here--goldfinches, crickets, ink drawings--but also the solid comforts of earthenware mugs, scones, and sacks of books, and these poems examine with rich imagery and surprising associations what is fleeting and what is sturdy. The landscape of Flynns poems juxtapose the tough with the tender, and the result is a collection in the voice of a daughter, sister, wife, and mother that reveals the intense, complicated intersection of all this rage and love.
