Editorial Reviews

Review

"Doubts and secret disappointments are the knots that secure this hammock...stretch out...hang suspended...But beware: do not...relax." -- Melody Stevenson

I like [Gale's] gutsy sensuality--even snow banks have thighs...a dream like quality...rich with haunting images." -- Lyn Lifshin

Format: Paperback
I love the narrative style of these poems. Clear, yet something unseen moves through them and flexes like the muscled body of a snake. Each one a perfect story in poem form. Some of the moments are startling, scenes carved out of wood using broken glass. Strong poems from a bold, unique poetic voice.
