Each Bearing Out
SEPTEMBER 2022 FROM KELSAY BOOKS
“In Rebecca Brock’s chapbook, Each Bearing Out, children ask questions of time that none of us can answer. Here, the poet articulates every mother’s fear: what will be lost in my hands, what will refuse to be carried?"
—Remica Bingham-Risher, author of Starlight & Error
“Rebecca Brock’s piercing, honest poems describe moments in the ordinary life of a mother that make vividly clear what we sometimes would rather not think about: the fragility of life, the pain of love.”
—Alice Mattison, author of Conscience
"She makes the equation between the precarious nature of her children's burgeoning selves and that of the fragile health of the globe they will inherit. In these poignantly beautiful poems, despite terrors both human and environmental, love and nature abide.”
—Laurie Zimmerman, author of Bright Exit
