I uproot one of the ladies and use her to beat back a path through the others, until they look almost young again in the freshness of their bruises. When I get back to the pond most of the spinsters have frosted in the ground. The children are there wearing new fur coats. One is putting logs on a fire, while the other pulls dinner from the snow. —‘My children are abducted by 17th-century French courtesans’ Fully Clothed and So Forgetful is an intimate, intelligent first book by Hannah Mettner. Moving through love, motherhood, sexuality, family and anxiety, these poems infuse universal themes with wit and sudden, even shocking beauty. ‘I love these fierce, funny, unflinching poems.’ —Anna Jackson 'This book will push you down a marble staircase, and then cheerfully bring you a couple of aspirin.’—Hera Lindsay Bird
