Armchair Locomotion is a collection of poems of new observation and heightened movement. Whether for contemplating ideas while at rest or moving mindlessly, author Jen May manages to turn image to the surreal and action to dream.
This debut collection is comprised of a journey through days and seasons, urban to landscape, from the sterile to the emotional.
May has a talent for fresh images, in "Renewal," for example: mist covers everything like secrets and wears a frost bandage the next morning.
