The fridge Memory is an exuberant, unusually humorous occasion of sadness.
With fable-like miniature tales and brief lyric poems, Shannon Bramer creates an international plagued by stolen pears and prosthetic palms and inhabited via Kindness scientists and hot-air-balloon operators. The poems invoke a global of early life delights and demons within the context of grown-up fears and appetites: heartbreak, loss, jealousy and outdated sibling contention. You’ll locate the hopelessly misunderstood Love the Clown (never is going out with out his purple wig) and Noni, a forlorn younger guy who can’t cease crying.
But whereas unhappiness performs a starring function, the real hero of the gathering is the mind's eye; its transformative powers hot widows and drunken gods and distinctive mourners.
You won’t disregard The fridge Memory: the icebox cometh to hot your heart.
