A collection of haunting, image-rich poems about isolation, captivity, and vanishing.

The poems in Paige Ackerson-Kiely's third collection are set primarily in the rural northeast of America, and explore rural poverty, entrapment, captivity, violence, and a longing to vanish. Ranging from free verse to a long noir prose poem, they examine who her, or our, "captors" might be. Ackerson-Kiely is interested in characters who are aware of their foibles, and who find ways to turn away from those problems in search of connection and freedom.

Review:

Praise for Dolefully, A Rampart Stands

"Playful, punchy, clever, and strange, Ackerson-Kiely's poems are on-rhythm and off-center . . . some of the most unique pieces you'll read this year." -The Millions, "Must-Read Poetry"

"Dark, yet brimming with life." --HelloGiggles

"Ackerson-Kiely sketches a landscape in which sexism and economic oppression are indelibly linked . . . [revealing] the ways that power, censorship, and disbelief are internalized, as they live with us in our most solitary moments, and they circumscribe what is possible within our dreaming." -Kristina Marie Darling, Kenyon Review

"[Paige Ackerson-Kiely]'s third collection pulls no punches in depicting rural life, rustic customs, and the concerns of bar patrons and working folks. Her poems frequently escape into wildly imaginative imagery . . . consistently one of the most nuanced poets writing today, [she] offers evocative and unmatched verisimilitude." -Booklist

Praise for My Love Is a Dead Arctic Explorer

"Funny and wild with expertly conceived images . . . [Ackerson-Kiely's] poems make the familiar more familiar . . . and remind us to be absolutely shot through with anxiety and uncertainty and desire." --Michael Robbins, Chicago Tribune

"Dark, full of nature, and full of life, this collection will snarl its way into your soul." --Flavorwire
