Haunting... A soaring sense of history and solidarity pervades Gorman's debut collection... Call Us What We Carry is wide awake to the complex strata of human history and restlessly original in its poetic form... This is poetry rippling with communal recognition and empathy A book of poetry so alive you want to hold it and protect it, to read it all at once, and then immediately read it again Powerful... poignant... tender...
