    Martina Reisz Newberry conjures the mythopoetic, the natural, conjures the contact zone of the body in nature, fully aware of itself and of nature's powers. Her poems are sometimes harsh and honest about the self in relation to others, and the lived life: human, to be sure, meditative in the face of death and ruin.—Albino Carillo

Best Poem of Martina Reisz Newberry

What Beauty Does (From Take The Long Way Home, Unsolicited Press)

Oddly
Beauty requests nothing of us.
It's the homely beast, the uncomely woman,
the ill-favored child—
these are the ones who want to be
the swans of fairy tales,
the betês turned to princes.
Beauty only sits, static, wonderful
dreaming whipped cream dreams
and watching prodigious visions.
Like deer watching water,
calliope music over the water.
