Review of Avignon, Early Summer by Brynn Saito
Avignon, Early Summer by Brynn Saito appeared in the Winter 2013 issue of The Virginia Quarterly Review. The poem starts in Nagasaki, presumably just after the atom bomb destroyed the city, where a woman contemplates her death by fire, then moves to the now peaceful city of Avignon where another woman enjoys her honeymoon. The juxtaposition was moving, eerie.
