Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0615933610, Paperback)

If We Could Know Our Bones, by Mary Carroll-Hackett is a full length, 82 page collection of poetry.

Two words--"listen; build"--nest quietly in one of the poems from Mary Carroll-Hackett's beautiful/tough/fragile collection, If We Could Know Our Bones. They are seeds from which she conjures and nurtures a world of words simple and complex; lives brief and infinite; love physical and soul-full; spirit deeply rooted in the earth and carried on the wind. "The apples don't last. She buys them anyway," she writes, and: "The only reason to live / is to give ourselves away." We do... to her poems... without hesitation-- Robert Gray, Editor, Shelf Awareness
