|"One Moment, One Memory, One Motion by Deb Simpson
is truly remarkable collection of poetry. Its subject matter is as
serious as its writing is accessible. One Moment, One Memory, One
Motion tells Deb’s story of living through and recovering from
There is no need for fantastic circumstance or obscure literary
reference; the events and emotions conveyed carry more than
enough power. She has no need for pretense or literary
cryptology. What she does is spin memory and pure emotion into a
tapestry as clearly seen, intricate, and unique as the illustrations on
almost every page of the book.
While the collection is about overcoming sexual abuse, not every
poem is one of hurt and pain. Poems such as “Mama’s Face” and
“Pink Place” are sweet and peaceful, recollections of the sorts of
places we all hopefully have. “Pendulum of the King” reasserts the
kind of faith it takes to make it through adversity, whether it be
that of abuse or simply despair.
One Moment, One Memory, One Motion goes further than
exploring pain and hardship, extending back to recovery. Indeed,
while the collection as a whole was quite well done, I found the most
inspired work to be that concerning overcoming the past. Perhaps
it is the more universal nature of these poems that I find appealing.
The entire collection inspires feeling, but poems like the
aforementioned “Pendulum of the King” and “Reclaiming and
Renaming” are applicable to my own life.
In short, One Moment, One Memory, One Motion is a superbly
written and powerfully felt collection of poems. While the subject
matter may mean that it’s not a book for everyone, it is an
incredibly enlightening book for those willing to give it a chance."
