"Kim Garcia seduces through the lack of seductiveness. The utmost seriousness of her poetry has a taste of truth - a taste we've almost forgotten under the constant shower of irony." -Adam Zagajewski
The red berries I crushed last year
are back on the bushes.
Fall's hard-shelled buds
engorged with flesh and seed.
Even the leaves are caught
with sugar on their hands.
I prayed to be older and wiser;
This is what happened.
