Maine Author Releases Debut Poetry and Prose Collection with Unsolicited Press

 In What Have I Done?, Carrie Close writes, “All these little birds keep picking at me/hard, determined beaks peck through skin, scrape/against bone—they dance and chirp ominous tones…” The connection Close builds between themes of love, motherhood, and relationships hits you in the fame like a taut rubber band forcing you to home in on every last detail. Close pens a charged, feminist collection that avoids polishing for the sake of looking good.
