  • Poetry Reading - Sheryl St. Germain "Small Door of Your Death"
    • What we'll do Long time Dallas poet, Sheryl St. Germain reads poems from her latest book, The Small Door Of Your Death. Written after the loss of her son, Gray, to addiction , Sheryl deals with issues of grieving and living beyond a life shattering event. On a personal note, Sheryl was my first writing instructor at UT-Dallas. She started me on my path to my MFA at Vermont College and coming out as a gay man. She inspired us to create the Greater Dallas Community of Writers which is now called the Dallas Poet Community. She is a pebble that caused a ripple that caused a wave that changed the shore. About the book This honest and haunting collection of poems follows the loss of the poet's only son to heroin addiction. St. Germain takes us through the stages of her grief and offers no false promises or simple answers. These narrative-driven poems are a compelling and compassionate look into addiction and its effect on a family. Review Alcoholism and drug addiction equal death. They follow in that order in this stunning heartbreaking fierce book of grief. No one should lose a son but if he dies after a light filled life it is tragic -- if he dies after a life of formative pain and struggle, it's disaster and tragedy. St. Germain provides a platform for the bitter headwind of a mother's grief -- of perseverance and lost reckonings. There's no sea change for addiction. There's only drowning. No poetic policies can set that right, but that this book could have been written at all means that somewhere a chorus of Angels is spurring the poet on -- for no earthly ability could make her endure page after page of brutal tectonics. This book is epic in shaping a life and death where the coalition of drugs curse and ruin life's every opportunity. This is penetrating mesmerizing writing. A star shines through the ruin and rubble -- evidence that this boy's spirit lives through his mother's brave hand.--Grace Cavalieri "The Washington Independent Review of Books" (1/1/[masked]:00:00 AM) Review “In Sheryl St. Germain’s new collection, we find ourselves enthralled by one woman’s attempt to look straight into the eyes of Loss without blinking—to speak, without stuttering, grief’s true name—a name none of us wants to know, though we always listen for its inevitable approach. St. Germain’s work teaches us how to talk back, how to talk through the intimate agonies that, in many ways, define what it means to be human now. Muriel Rukeyser said poetry cannot save us but it is the kind of thing that could. I think this book is proof of that.” (Tim Seibles) “In this brilliant, wrenchingly beautiful book, Sheryl St. Germain limns the unbearable death of her son via overdose, the agonizing history of her family’s addictions, and her own fragile recovery. With astonishing lyricism, she gives us “snow and its dark sister: a kind of brutal cold that stings you awake.” She gives us an “Ode to Needles,” in which the needles of White Spruce and Lodgepole Pine become the needles both she an • What to bring • Important to know
