Gibbs’s poems are full of passionate crises

In her first book Jules Gibbs has plans to outsmart and dismantle the world using the old measure of song as her vehicle and bliss as her lever. There are bloody sacrifices to be made and some stewing sustenance to be tasted. There is damage done as well as considerable beauty being made. A crown sonnet at the center of the book is a fiery testimony to the ecstasy and conscience that form the antipodes of a relationship. Bliss Crisis introduces us to an extravagant beauty and reckoning of our selves.
