    Strong, Original, Moving

    As a doctor who deals with patients, illness, and suffering on a daily basis, I was moved by this book and grateful for its author's honesty and vision. These poems are visceral, filled with images, and haunting--not only the poems about a nurse tending her patients, but also the poems that deal with other relationships. My favorite poems were 'What the Nurse Likes,' 'The Body Flute,' 'How I Imagine It,' 'What Man Might Kill,' and 'On the Wards.' Powerful, sensual poems.

    Read this rare book for exquisite details!

    Read this book for exquisite details of the body as flesh -- cared for by Davis, a writer more than familiar with her topic. She continues her pulsating discourse that was started when the body was an electric and vibrating reed in THE BODY FLUTE (Adastra, 1994) and when the body was a proud courageous member of the chorus in the anthology BETWEEN THE HEARTBEATS ( co-ed with Schaefer, U of Iowa P, 1995). The details of this current collection are exquisite -- filled with pain and pleasure, all at one time, to a needlepoint degree. Davis is an astute observer and a courageous writer, willing to describe with passion and with cool reserve. If you read one collection of poetry this month, read this one!
