Overview


Poetry. "These poems contain a wonderful capacity to incorporate unpredictability, humor, anguish, anxiety, longing, and feisty note of confusion and survival...poems that are not wedded to literal and linear meaning of experience but to the imagined and circular meanings and play. WHIRLIGIG is consistently attentive to an edgy playfulness and serious mindfulness, continuing dialogue with matters of faith through failings of identity and belief in self and others. The poems carry the musical moment with an easy sensibility. The observations ripple and pause with seduction and sensuality" -- Jason Shinder, Founder of YMCA National Writers Voice and author of Among Women.
