“Sarah Thursday’s poems feel personal, as though we’re standing at her lighted windows—intimate glimpses of the poet’s heart, its vulnerabilities, its scars. The colors of her journey: green jealousy and red surrender, black loneliness, the bruised purple of longing: “It’s not his tongue,/ or its softness, but/ the fullness of my mouth/ at its opening.” The dark gray of ache: “Lie to my body, if need be until/ I don’t need to remember why.” And love, the sum of all colors. These poems are honest, real, and rich in image and introspection. They keep us at her window until long past midnight.” —Ricki Mandeville, A Thin Strand of Lights
