HAUNTED BONES

Haunted Bones, poetry by Chris Tusa (Louisiana Literature Press, 2006)

In Haunted Bones, Chris Tusa probes uncharted waters with courage, with energy, strength and clarity of vision. Microscoping the incorporeal, he holds a magnifying glass up to the mind of a hypochondriac in poems detailing fear of tumors, leukemia, bad weather or the sky falling. Intense and compelling, Haunted Bones is a vivid and hard edged collection. Chris Tusa’s poems cannot be folded and sailed out into the night because like a boomerang in the shape of “Satan’s hipbone,” they return and linger in the recesses of the mind. --Vivian Shipley

Haunted Bones is indeed haunted--by characters, such as Mr. Potato Head, Botticelli's Venus, and a Voodoo Priestess--and by images, such as a grandmother's teeth staring from a bedside mason jar, or bones "rattling like empty bottles of beer." The lucky reader who finds this collection will be glad to carry the ghosts of these poems into the tangerine-hued future.
