“Lauren Marie Cappello is a poet. Luck is the beauty that helped us find each other in the crumpled letters of New York City. She is a timeless creature and always lights up every room. And then, oh, then there are the poems.
These poems. Here, with her pen, she lassos the dawn’s teeth spun with the quiet grace of small moments. She whispers fire plucked from the ether like wildflowers. Amongst many roses, she is a golden thorn burning the sound of beauty into petals of silk.
You will drown in stillness here and it is blissful. She artfully filters the noises of the world into sublime introspection and feeds these sounds into an echoed mouth.
Lauren’s words sing and set the tongue dancing. Yet there is the delicious rough texture of a racing stop motion pulse alive in these lilting phrases.
You, there: set up camp and lock eyes with these poems that follow and they will stare back through you as they stroke your cheek and cradle your locked jaw.
I write these words with love and true admiration for a gem of our time. I am so grateful to have been able to listen in all of these years.”
