Welcome to the Museum of Cattle by Jane Ormerod

Poet Jane Ormerod follows up her critically-acclaimed collection "Recreational Vehicles on Fire" (Three Rooms Press, 2009) with the powerful and visionary work, "Welcome to the Museum of Cattle," in which her unique style firmly establishes her as a master of a unique visual/language poetry stream. Ormerod, a former visual artist, writes poetry that thrusts images into thought, juxtaposing the familiar with the peculiar, imposing emotion on a plastic world. Her poems offer startling new observations of the world, filled with both humor and deep insight. Reading Jane Ormerod is like experiencing your favorite music in a way you've never heard it before.
