Great Regulars: [Ailbhe] Darcy was born in 1981 in Dublin,

now lives in Indiana, and co-edits the Irish e-journal Moloch. Her work is funny and stylish, with an agile, zesty erudition and no lack of political fire. But the quieter poems are appealing, too--poems like Silt Whisper, which is oblique and tender, and reminds us that poetry's language needn't always strive to say it all. The strategy of writing as if slightly out of breath is nicely chosen.

Silt Whisper

from Carol Rumens: The Guardian: Poem of the week: Silt Whisper by Ailbhe Darcy
