She’s off the leash: dismantled, backwards, off-shore. Egyptian Goddess stalking the town! These impacted poems are both dynamically sonic and acutely narrative, sparkling with the bright surrealism of the everyday. May your heart leave your body like channel surfing, up a salt river you have to go days to find. May you look up from the good dark soil running through your fingers like melting ice caps and say: “Outside the sky there is sun.”
