Item description for Unspoiled Air by Kaisa Ullsvik Miller...
With her debut collection, Unspoiled Air, Kaisa Ullsvik Miller affirms the reader's perhaps heretofore unrecognized need for a gentle and daily massaging of profanely innocuous, even corporate language into deliverable spiritual meaning. This is a need that, once identified, becomes acute: We NEED to hear, for example, that to create a deficiency or incompleteness in unique talents and abilities/ increase talents available for creating together. This is a partnership. Ullsvik Miller's radical patience with received truism allows for these paradoxically indispensable communiques to be communicated: to provide for our needs, / to protect us from dangerous destructive inconveniences/ we encounter// red waves/ the form of feelings We wander/ through our own guidance// . . . In this work pronouns and referential infrastructure are blurred, allowing that feeling of incompleteness that is necessary for fresh perception. Thus communal bonds are made readily available.

The debut collection by 2008 Motherwell Prize winner Kaisa Ullsvik Miller Jul 10, 2008
The debut collection by 2008 Motherwell Prize winner Kaisa Ullsvik Miller, Unspoiled Air is an anthology of brief, free-verse poems winding in undulating, soothing patterns that dare to offer a glimmer of hope against the stark indifference of the universe. Encapsulating instants in time and emotion, Unspoiled Air affects the senses like a deep breath of its titular subject. "A Flower's Work": a flower's intention is / of a flower work // you are the center // of the flower, // The vivid, delicate petals / delight / and health
