About Some Churches:

"'The line "Is this the end?' appears in this book's final poem, but all the others seem to ask that same question. They languor in every moment, and simultaneously manage to be timeless. The smaller the poem, the more expansive the idea: that's the poet's best move, and Cotter pulls it off beautifully-even when she writes about Bananagrams or the Ultratech Computer parking lot. She knows something that I don't, and I feel like it's an act of generosity to share so much so well in these pages."
—Adam Robinson
