Words fail but the voice struggles on.The culmination of a decade’s worth of performance poetry, Roadworthy Creature, Roadworthy Craft is Kate Magill’s first full-length publication. In lines that are sinewy yet delicate, Magill’s poems explore the terrain where idea and action meet, where bodies and words commingle to form a strange new flesh, a breathing text, an “I” that spirals outward from itself.
