Praise For Cut the Lights

Micaela Walley leans all the way into the eye of grief, into the sweat of memory, into the ‘onyx and obsidian’ wing of the vulture as it hunts. These poems draw us close in a voice that is honest, full of breath and close to flesh.

ASHLEY M. JONES

Poet Laureate of the State of Alabama

With sardonic wit and a post-modern sense of reinvention, this collection resonates with wisdom, lyricism, and urgency. The poems reflect on history and personal ancestry while also staking a claim for the future.

CHARLOTTE PENCE

author of Code and Many Small Fires

Laying aside the bombast of knives, Walley’s poems work like scalpels. Each incision reveals an instant—the pills, the drugs, the anxieties of family rupture—and unlocks the instants of the past as they tread on the future.
