Lisa Dordal’s Commemoration moves from elegiac poems that respond to a mother’s alcoholism, death, and the heartbreaking “process of separating” to those that chronicle “falling out of hiding” into sexual awareness and fulfillment. Every poem in this collection is finely made, with quartz-like clarity and complexity; in sequence, they gain the undeniable urgency and inevitability of “atoms, quarks, and auras / and all the love that lies between.” This is a wise and powerful collection.

Claudia Emerson, winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Late Wife
