    Edgy, Smart Poems

    Exciting, tough, sexy poems with street smarts and book smarts. I remember her poems from Poetry magazine. I'm glad she finally has a book out.

    They Sing at Midnight

    I loved this! A powerful, funny voice with a rock 'n roll attitude. Brave poems that tackle everything from love, AIDS, nightclubs, and mythology.

    They Sing at Midnight

    I sometimes find poetry to be too dry, but They Sing is smart and reader-friendly. I love the sounds in the poems, as well as how she lets mythological figures speak their stories. These poems are both intense and generous. It's the best book of poems I've read in a long time.
