Hams Beneath the Firmament: Poems
Hams Beneath the Firmament, Terri Ford’s second books of poems, is a portrait-at-a-gallop, a series of drive-by rhymes, a lively foray into the “jello of elsewhere.” It is a book with sex, with budgies, with kissing the dead, and with Mid western livelihoods, with “counting asymptomatic / years.” A more rambunctious collection of poems does not exist, its “inkity blue” skies and “the way the wild-eyed speak // of the rapture” spectacularly its own. Original in its descriptions, and allowing pause for reflection amongst its rollercoaster of visions, Hams Beneath the Firmament is a tour-de-force collection.
