Digital Copy - Cemetery Music by Birdy Odell
Digital file type(s): 1 PDF
In Cemetery Music, the conflicting feelings we have around death and dying are explored in a collection of vignettes created by pairing found words, that are markedly melancholy, with artwork that is lighthearted, hopeful, and poignant.
The poems themselves invoke an emotional response using very few words. There is sadness in death. It is a universal reaction. Using words that have been discarded highlights our fear of loss. Memories are often all we have left. Happy memories are still tinged with sorrow. And yet, somehow, we carry on.

Amazing poetry from an amazing press that gives a voice to anyone who’s ever been silenced.
What a lovely book of poetry ... lovely but also fierce. As this is a digital copy, there was no time spent waiting for it to be shipped. My experience with the shop was the best.
This book is both heartbreaking and cathartic. Written from the perspectives of persons recovering from abuse, it gives a deep sense of both loss and resiliency.
The poem was decent. I would be interested in reading more of their work, however this particular piece didn't really speak to me. But to each their own. Id still recommend this shop.
