Really quite lovely, although it's painful reading in parts. It's part meditation on mermaids, part exploration of the consequences of alcoholism, and each of the sections informs the other. A study in symbols, essentially, and of the things that bind them together.I recently read another of Wiseman's books ("Wake") and in a way I wish I'd read this one first, as gives background to the other; explains it a little more I think.

A Book Review of Laura Madeline Wiseman’s DRINK (BlazeVOX [Books] 2015)by Dennis Etzel, Jr. Fairy tales come from dark places within cultures, passed down from generation to generation, retold and revised, and functions to help an audience to cope with tragedy and humanity’s dark sides. Laura Madeline Wiseman wonderfully refreshes the fairy tale’s function in her new collection of poems titled Drink. “Drink” not only operates as verb and noun, but, alongside mermaids as we enter the un [...]

DRINK (BlazeVOX) explores the mercurial myths of mermaids, nautical lore of drift bottles, and unmapped beach parties at the Pacific, to questions the changeable stories we tell of water, those connected to plane disappearances, downed ships, lost girls, and forgotten lives.

As half-women, the mythical mermaids that swim and roll through the first third of Laura Madeline Wiseman’s Drink, call up the murky waters of teenage life.

The mermaids are “mercurial,” always on the verge of transformation in the same way teenagers exist in a constant state of flux, almost daily changing into new versions of themselves. They “change with the [...]

I received this book, as an Advance Readers Copy, and devoured it in one sitting.It was raw, reaching and real. The scope of the book, dealing with plane crashes, mermaids,drinking, bottle collections, relationships,a horrible childhood and suicide all were put together in a read that totally grabbed me and made me want more.I totally recommend this amazing book, Drink.

Everything water, taken from seascapes, this washed through me with deep imagery, and sustenance. Not a fan of Mermaids per se, but this talented, wise poet turns me on to them and their mighty forces as I never thought I would ever be. Stunning work.

amazingunning, just wonderfully done.
