From the publisher

Beneath a deceptively calm surface, a powerful voice offers original slants on the ambiguous aspects of loving people. Aspects that are hard to talk directly about and are somehow deeply entwined with the natural world. These poems are placed at compass points encircling the object of love, whether that be another person or oneself, sensually embracing everything that interrupts the view.

These poems remind me of eccentric headwear on women unfettered by convention. Her poems travel the world, pause as still-lives, celebrate love. They’ll lift you up – they’re so full of compassion, questions and joy..

Jackie Wills
