Love her poems! Located geographically and socially, Teague has a deft and moving way of recounting a life in our times. I am especially fond of the moving poems about teaching.

Format: Paperback
Death awaits everyone, so it's all a matter of what one does with their time. "Mortal Geography" is a collection of poetry from Alexandra Teague, presenting many thoughtful and creative poems for readers to make them ponder the human experience that unites us all. "Mortal Geography" is an enticing collection of poetry, highly recommended. "Language Lessons": The carpet in the kindergarten room/was alphabet blocks; all of us fidgeting/on bright, primary letters. On the shelf/sat that week's inflatable sound./ The Th/was shaped like a tooth. We sang/about brushing up and down, practiced exhaling while touching our tongues to our teeth. Next week, a puffy U/like an upside-down umbrella; the rest/of the alphabet deflated. Some days,/we saw parents through the windows/to the hallway sky. Look, a fat lady,/a boy beside me giggled. Until then/I'd only known my mother beautiful.
