Tamiko Beyer's "We Come Elemental" reviewed at Lamba Literary

Congrats, dear Tamiko! 

We Come Elemental
By Tamiko Beyer

"Tamiko Beyer packs a good deal of complication into We Come Elemental, her slim new book of poetry from Alice James Books. With a lean, lyrical style, Beyer asks the reader to contemplate the connection between the natural world and ourselves; how water and mud and land intersect with identity and body and politics; and whether the lines we draw are as firm as we would have ourselves believe."
