Susie Maguire's poems, at times tender (Friend, How to Hug, Oldman Outside In), funny (Breaking Up With The Imaginary Boyfriend, The Message, Walking at the Palais Royal), bitter-sweet (Clever Girl, In this Gap..., Train as a Nurse) have brightened my days.
I have stepped into Susie Maguire's universe and made some of her lines mine (good poetry echoes our own lives after all) : "the rain is where I am, the rain is where they are not".
How To Hug has given me holidays and thoughts : Aquí estoy, señor - adónde vamos? Croaks my new voice, Señor El Cuervo bows - "Jugar con el viento, chica! Arriba!"
The beautiful artwork on the cover is also by Susie Maguire!
Hopefully this book will be again in print soon! I know a few people who could do with it but I'm not (yet) ready to give mine away..
