"Maureen Thorson's narrator addresses a former love (who may as well be us) in a series of beautiful sonnetlike pieces that cohere in a sequence like shards in a mosaic—some bits darker, some brighter, each tight. “I want to diagram the light that shines out through the holes you pricked in me,” she says. “Instead, I retract into extravagant gestures, diaries, bonfires, the psycho gloss of wilted blossoms, dead-eyed stamens stitched in rows.” Thorson’s Applies to Oranges sings and surprises in both new and timeless ways, as love’s decay blooms gorgeously and is borne away by dissipating spiders." [blurb I wrote for it] ( )
