Enter Water, Swimmer

Front Cover
Texas Review Press, 2018 - Poetry - 100 pages

These poems travel physically and emotionally, addressing the human condition through their evocative language. Steeped in this world and beyond, "Enter Water, Swimmer" and you will be in the various manifestations of what it is to be human--looking back at a girl in a painting by Vermeer, searching for God through a Medina in Morocco, following Marie Laveau in New Orleans, and experiencing illness, healing, birth, and the mysteries of death. Taken together, this collection structures a world full in life, daring to take on the various realms of women, belief, culture, and ethics.
