Suzanne Doyle, in her first volume of poems in more than a decade, grapples with despair and loss, with a fierce formality whose only antecedents may be Baudelaire and Cunningham. Lucid and rich with meaning, these poems will leave you knowing you have been somewhere.

Mej. Zelle

Mej. Zelle

In youth I was your basic overweight Dutch frump,
As at the end I was. Between, the quantum jump

To Mata Hari, ethnic artist dancing nude
Before Crowned Heads, if not the Asian multitude

That would know bump-and-grinding when they saw it. Spy?
Well, maybe. Such few secrets as I could supply

I hardly understood. But faced with firing squad
I was as firm as Nurse Cavell. A simple nod

That signals one is ready; and the blindfold off,
To serve as scarf, inhibit any final cough.
