PRAISE FOR FALL ILL MEDICINE
Fall Ill Medicine is a book of poems that brings one back to body’s story – with a brutal pull soft as moth’s wings. There is a lovestory that exists in between objects and silences and ribs. There is a lifestory that makes strength from our frailties. Carrie Seitzinger sings the body home.
– Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Chronology of Water and Dora: A Headcase
In Carrie Seitzinger’s collection Fall Ill Medicine we are healed. Seitzinger is a doctor of the lyric moment, a humanist of narrative, and has the bedside manner any poet would be lucky to have—that is a verse filled with truth, mystery, and kinetic energy. As she writes in her poem Freefall Flight “Then I walk to the window and fall out. / And it is beautiful and I am happy.” And so we are lucky to walk into the windows of her poems, and through the fall made beautiful and happy.
– Matthew Dickman, author of All-American Poem and Mayakovsky’s Revolver: Poems
Fall Ill Medicine honors its title completely. It’s a literary safe house for the ravaged heart. If these poems are ever recorded, they should only be put on vinyl.
– Rachel McKibbens, author of Pink Elephant
Darkness is a comfortable carpet for all. Not everyone can find a way to yank it up from the tacks and flip the thing so that it feels like new medicine and home. Seitzinger does this with a pale grace that doesn’t wallow in sorrow, but finds a narrow ease. Welcome to an erotic super-suck that lulls the reader with the Gods of ‘ghostcolor,’ pink wedding rice and secret places. Here awaits the kinds of places that only hungry poetry will unlock.”
– Derrick Brown, author of Strange Light and President of Write Bloody Publishing
