“Brianna Albers knows bodies. She knows their every ebb & flow, their snap/& break. Her poems are luminous with hands, mouths, ears, and the powers they possess when it comes to love and damage. Whether a flock of brides is busy falling to the ground or Eve is writing a letter to Adam, Albers infuses her first collection with moments of magical realism, grace, and influential women dancing in the ruins of their kingdoms. Her ability to pen pieces inspired by literary greats while still maintaining her own unique voice is a gift many would be unlikely to parallel. In the opening poem, Albers writes about a man who has worlds nestled/in the notches of his spine. Why I’m Not Where You Are has whole worlds nestled inside it too.”
