Sútra is a Sanskrit word that literally means thread. From its opening poem, Sútra, Maureen Sherbondy’s Scar Girl threads together a cautionary tale of a girl, scarred from life in a dysfunctional house, yet reaching for stars just out of reach. There is a clever stirring in of Jack and Jill from nursery rhyme in a couple of poems, an appearance by King Kong in another, and a giant who annually tramples through her summer garden. Maureen Sherbondy masterfully stitches together poems that employ metaphor and image to set up superb endings.
