Overview

The all encompassing theme in this debut collection is how a person holds the tension of opposites— darkness to light, from loss to reconciliation and redemption. In the middle of life with both feet on the ground, the poet wrestles with the realization that the ground is never stable and that life changes in a split second. The reader is led through two worlds, the geographic one—from Egypt to Malaysia from India to Cape Cod, and the inner one—entered by celebratory, riveting and dangerous poems as they move through sex, love, birth, and death.
