House Fire


“In these gem-like, many-faceted poems, B. J. Buhrow evokes–with a luminous sexuality, a voluptuous clarity–the bright promise and ominous threat that reside in the seemingly mundane and commonplace. Mortality, lawlessness, beauty, love, and risk roil beneath the calm, taut surfaces of her compelling and haunting lyrics. House Fire is a beautiful, and unforgettable, book.” –Ron Wallace, author of Plums, Stones, Kisses & Hooks
