Overview

Poet Loiterer is D.L. Lang's fifth poetry book. This 180 page collection features nature poems, protest poems, spiritual poems, and story poems.

"Lang's themes include wanderlust, love for nature (and especially hiking in the California hills), religious devotion, paying the bills versus living the artist's life, and transforming from a passive pacifist to an activist. "You gave me lungs, / so that I might breathe peace" expresses forthright praise to God in "What You Created," and elsewhere, verse expresses delight in Jewish practice: "There's music and Torah both running through my soul," she observes--a quirky combination that brings to mind a Jewish Janis Joplin. In the satirical "Doves in Season," the traditional peace symbol is being hunted. "Fear not the rocking boat," another poem advises, encouraging readers to question racism, capitalism, and America's reliance on weapons. There's "More than one way to be an American," the poem "Headline Antidote" insists; indeed, this collection imagines a peaceful, joyful future America." -- Kirkus Reviews
