“I wrote many of these poems during a difficult time in my life and, to my surprise, it’s filled with odes. There’s an ode to repetition, to invisibility, to boredom, to the first peach, to the god of atheists, to the fish, to a beautiful surgeon’s black slit skirt. Poetry is always grappling with the question: how do we go on? And one way is to find beauty—and humor—in the humblest, most unexpected places. And to praise this gorgeous, tender, terrifying life that is ours for just a second or two.”
Softcover, 6x9, 80pp., 2014.
