Collaborating with her ailing brother's hand-written field guide to prairie grasses, Still attends to torn paper, shadings, erasures and intervals, venturing inside the chrysalis, the breathing tube and the brittle lexicon of botany to achieve a lyrical foliation of grief. From coma to comma, the held breath sprouts and hums.

“Comma is a living, breathing field guide to the unconscious." — Christine Fellows

“Read the poetry as you might search for a special midnight star, by attending to the edges of vision (and words) where brightness shines best.” — Jeanne Randolph

“Jennifer Still writes in the key of “e”: ellipses, elision, elusion, erasure, effusion, ephemera. She makes (and unmakes) poems out of the pollen and electrons, out of eraser dust and memory, emending the margins with invisible stitches in the effervescing, mineral light of grief.” — Elizabeth Philips
