Poetry as Claire Millikin

Poetry. “Claire Millikin’s lines condense paradoxical and painful experience into glittering musical constellations—an expressionist torrent, informed by a neoclassical taste for symmetry and keen closure. Defying all jurisdiction, her lyrics evade their own meticulous borders, and reach with astonishing poignance into a zone of pure, lancing attestation: the Cassandra-clarity of soulful witness.”
-Wayne Koestenbaum
