The first time through this poem I thought “sacral” was an error, but right after we get “resurrect the spine” and suddenly it’s all wordplay. The poet raises the old question (how do we tell the dancer from the dance?) but embeds it in the language arts. Poem or poet, more written than writer. We shape our writing, and writing shapes us.

I Made a Place for You is a poetry collection that resides firmly in a sense of place, embracing readers with an invitation to explore psychic and physical connections to the world. Its free verse is emotionally charged with powerful description and metaphor from the start: "We abracadabra our flaws/into a mausoleum of deceit/for a semblance of redemption/in shelling our leprosy aside."

Apoet offers reflections on death in this debut collection. The speaker in White’s slim, succinct poetry chapbook has death on his mind. In fact, based on the first poem, “Post Mortem,” he may already be dead.
