Airport

Just in time for Spring, a fresh chapbook.

In BHP’s fourth release, Airport, Emily Kendal Frey turns on the tropes of terminals and ticket desks, baggage claims and chain restaurants, letting them “shift and breathe.” Frey, with both a sense of loss and humor, crafts a lucid lyric cycle from the raw material of commuters, vacationers, and separated lovers. Airport is a work of brushing bodies that inhabit a distilled emotional weightlessness, and the airport plays host as a backdrop of physical time.

Please read, please enjoy, please send your comments. BHP would love to hear from you.
