I was keen therefore to get and read a copy of an early book of her poetry.
I have now read it twice in two separate sittings and recommend it without hesitation.
Some poems I still don't get others I will return to again and again. Without question Altzheimer's is a stand out poem that doesn't mention the condition by name within the poem but even without the title you would understand the illness for what it is. "....passing time, time being lost." "I am here wrapped in mysterious lapses of time ....." Powerful stuff but the first three words are those that resonate "I am here ......." so often we feel we have lost a loved one to this new reality but they remain present if caught in a different time.
Moving on 'Charlie' is a strong poem and I loved 'My Grandfather's Box'
A themed collection in three parts mostly reflective and about relationships. Strong ideas wonderfully expressed and captured in brief words or within the whole poem. "Have you ever heard the sound of death approaching? It is the moment before you know yourself."
I enjoyed this book and identified with the feelings shared or produced in reading these verses. 'Domesticity' strikes a chord. 'Backstrokes' was clever while 'A Mother's String' and 'Birth Mother brought me close to tears.

The cover is beautiful. My favorite piece in this book has to be "Alzheimer's".
"We keep walking in familiar circles, never reaching familiar places, and I feel as though, I will never reach home."
I recommend this to anyone who wants to have an enjoyable read.
