Book of the Week: Between Hail Marys

kenny_betweenhailmaryscoverAdele Kenny’s very brief chapbook (Muse Pie Press, 1986) reconstructs the gruesome murders of four women in San Salvador in 1980. Given its brevity and its narrative, we offer only two poems and urge you to view the entire book.

You can read the entire book in the THF Digital Library.

Do you have a chapbook published 2010 or earlier you would like featured as a Book of the Week? Contact us for details.

between Hail Marys the taste of blood
after the earth only the silent kyrie of stars

    Thank you for this…
