What People are Saying About This
“My Multiverse is a contemporary ‘Metamorphosis’a collection of finally wrought shifts and surprises. Kathleen Halme is one of those astonishing poets whose every line is a poem itself, while each poem is a universe. To read her work is to live for a while in her extraordinary sensibility, and to learn how to see more clearly and hear strange and beautiful music everywhere. Her uncannily imaginative vision is unlike anyone else’s I’ve encountered, and I can’t imagine the reader of poetry who won’t be surprised and moved and changed by these poems.”
