    One thought on “Smoke: Poems”

    1. These poems look unflinchingly at the lives of nurses, of their patients. Filled with empathy and an eye for the right detail, Bryner's poems could fall into the trap of "Saint Nurse" poems, but she doesn't. These nurses are complicated, three dimensional, and the poems with their formal ingenuity and willingness to experiment with voice are equally as complicated while remaining accessible.

    2. I think I would like this a lot more if I was a nurse. I only like seven of the poems in this book, but the seven that I like are beautiful! My favorite poem is "Spared."
