Supper & Repair Kit

by Nicole Wilson

"Both a reflection of body and of the self, and a record of its voluntary and involuntary changes, Nicole Wilson's poetry collection Supper & Repair Kit explores the force of personal will on bodies, of culture and expectation, and the power of happenstance over human beings. Composed of four long poems that incorporate image and non-language marks into their structures, Wilson explores how to re-make the self through language and body.

"Wilson's speaker cannot escape the loss of her sister, but she does wish for "a new / taste bud," a new coping mechanism for dealing with the pain. And I wonder—what can she ask for beyond writing, beyond the field notes she gathers to reconstruct her twin?"
