In her first pamphlet, Fletcher extracts uncommon poetry from common and extraordinary events alike. Dates disappoint in surprising ways. 21st century life is shadowed by the glamour and squalor of a 20th century that refuses to die. Confessional narrators pose complex angles on relationships, teetering between romance and abuse. Fletcher’s poetry places us, shiny, tender, and bruised, in the here and now.
