She Hands Me the Razor

“The poems of Richard Krawiec are not unflinching. The things they discover, observe, and reveal might cause anyone to flinch. But this poet does not avert his gaze; he sees and endures and at last achieves a dearly bought and perhaps unexpected grace. I admire this collection enormously because I never doubted, always thinking, ‘Yes, this is how it must have been.’ Powerful experiences powerfully rendered with an art that seems almost casual. I salute this high, rude accomplishment.”
Fred Chappell, former North Carolina Poet Laureate and author of Shadow Box: Poems
