Brief Review by Mary Soon Lee of “Ghost Tongue” by Nicole Rollender

“Ghost Tongue” (Porkbelly Press, 2016) is a chapbook that contains ten beautifully worded poems that convey mood and strangeness.  There is something lovely here, something cryptic and just out of reach of my understanding.  I wasn't certain whether the first person narrator was intended to be common to all of the poems, but whether or not the poems are part of a single narrative they reinforce one another. I particularly appreciate the specific details, the attentive phrasing, and the sense of nature pervading the collection.  “Ghost Tongue” may be purchased through for $7.00
