"When will the past be done with us?" asks Tasha Cotter's poem "Stranger," one of many instances in Some Churches where the reader is confronted with truths few poems dare to approach. Like Szymborska, Cotter manages to crystallize moments of transcendent simplicity, and to make memory palpable. Illuminated with images both familiar and surreal, the poems of Some Churches give us a new reverence for the everyday.
— Mary Biddinger, author of O Holy Insurgency and Saint Monica
