Poetry. Known for her gutsy, sensual, dark and glittering poems, Kate Gale writes the world as it is: hard, cold, asking you for your money and then shooting you anyways. One of a new breed of successful, edgy poets, Gale is unwilling to soft-soap the way the world works. These poems are tingling, raw, and clouded with sadness.
