Jessica Raschke uses words as shards, reflecting fragmented emotional states. Her poems glisten with confidence as they ricochet between the abstract and deeply felt. But feelings are seen as capable of deception and, like reflections in a mirror, they are reversed and distorted. Despite a strong feeling for ambiguity, Raschke’s poems hold a certain intimacy and the promise of revelation.
