The poetry is urgent, lively, and sometimes haunting- appearing alongside stark black and white photos of Jones' homeless subjects. Jones takes on the plight of the homeless in different voices, echoing the thoughts of people on the streets, unfeeling passersby, and compassionate observers. Terry Messman, editor of Street Spirit in Berkeley, California, writes: 'Many times I have published a 'Judy Jones poem' on the front page of my Street Spirit because 'her' poems help reveal the realities of homelessness at a depth surpassing many of our news articles on the same subject. They speak directly to the souls of the readers and appeal to our hearts for a rebirth of compassion, justice, and love towards the poorest of our brothers and sisters.' Not to be missed!
