Galer's poetry is sensual and powerfully feminine--"deeply hued," to borrow a line from a poem. It speaks of ancient wisdom and Celtic tradition. But most important, it brings these layers of meaning home... The poems in this collection are part of a world I recognize. They move fluidly between Celtic mythology and Lake Superior, ecstatic visions and ocean waves and the Persian rug on the floor--not to mention road kill. This isn't some ethereal mysticism--it's here and now.
'Too Deep for Tears' is the work of a shaman. Taking an honest, unsentimental look at her experience, Galer reveals the numinous undercurrent that is always there, just out of sight. The result can be beautiful, it can be grotesque (as in 'Road Kill'), but it's always a revelation.
