Overview

Winner of the Gival Press Poetry Award

"The narrative poems of Meteor are both funny and thoughtful, turning ordinary situations on their heads and capturing strange, surprising scenes.”--Foreword Clarion Review, Feb. 2019

"...Mayo’s best work—perfect words without artifice; characters and situations made permanent; a triumph of language as a natural art ....”—Grace Cavalieri, The Poet and the Poem from the Library of Congress

“C.M. Mayo creates magic, in poems that transform the ordinary into something more marvelous and strange...."—Kim Roberts, author of A Literary Guide to Washington, D.C.
