To give you a taste of the exemplary writing, head headlong into this wonderful poem by Margaret Holley:
I See My Long Dead Mother in the Shop ’n Save
Fifty years gone, and yet here she is,
exactly her profile, every wave and curl
in place, navy cardigan over her trim figure,
sleeves pushed up to the elbows as usual,
a plastic bag dangling from her fingers,
as she leaves the checkout lane and pauses
to chat with two other women,
every cell in me quivers on high alert,
my breath leaps headlong over the barricade
of Visalia onions and brown baking potatoes,
the prison of fresh produce, a teenage
soul scrambles easily over Himalayas
of decades and frozen finalities,
teeters on the edge of two worlds till
I’m clear out of my mind for five seconds
of pure joy, thin wedge of a scream
muted by speechless amazement to see her
here, just looking young and happy,
when suddenly she laughs, turns toward
the heavy Exit door, and walks out
into the sunshine of mortal day.
