"You’ll never read a more playful book of doomsday poems than Amelia Martens’s The Spoons in the Grass Are There to Dig a Moat. Martens’s dark humor is delightfully paired with her astute observations of quiet pleasures. Her poems are grand with sweeping cosmic battles and frequent mentions of death and the end times, while also intricately small."
