Need some new poetry? Need to read some poems that time travel, serenade a dishwasher, or take a look at the trap of a romanticized youth? Need to read some poems that sound so good you want to read them aloud? You may need this book. If you've ever realized that the world is made of stories, & that, as Adair-Hodges puts it, "one day it is your finger on the spindle, / the next you are cursing the bobbin," then these poems—encompassing dating, childhood, aging, fairy tales, motherhood—these will speak to you.
Winner of the 2016 Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize
