Samenvatting

How bend these sinews of my art & on what anvil?-Jack KerouacThe poems in Ribbon Anvil were written in the months leading up to and after the end of an abusive relationship. The poems are quiet. They were written in the moments in between the difficult times, the restraining orders and court dates, the lawyers and arguments, the sundering of a family and the beginning of a new life. The difficult times are in the shadows of these poems, much the way a woman says everything is fine, really.The book's title was prompted from a quote by Jack Kerouac in Book of Dreams, that crazy kaleidoscope stream of consciousness writing. The wildness of Kerouac suited the crazy times and helped a fledgling writer discover the possibilities of language. Coupling anvil, the hard metal weight against which new things are forged with something soft and pliable like ribbon seemed like the perfect juxtaposition of elements.Ribbon Anvil is divided into three sections: Work, Substance, and Tensegrity. Work is the action, Substance the material, and Tensegrity a concept of Buckminster Fuller, a combination of tension and integrity applied to structure. The framework of Ribbon Anvil carries the road map of a new life.“Ribbon Anvil…displays great beauty and uncommon twinges of longing…crisp images and unsoftened edges…signatures of poetic roundness and hard work—amazing!”Nicki Miller, American University, Washington, DC“Lawson pens poetry with rich imagery and emotional resonance.”Doug Holder, Ibbetson Street Press“The sumptuous images in Lawson’s poetry flow effortlessly, we can almost drink them. Her book is well worth reading, again and again.”Ernie Wight, Ibbetson Street PressRibbon Anvil, Finalist for “Best Poetry Publication,” Cambridge Poetry Awards
