  1. Well, this book is certainly different Each poem s title is borrowed from other authors and to my slight irritation tend to be rather long e.g It was quite as if, she explained, the voices were unreal , although there are longer titles than this.The first and third parts were very good, filled with luscious imagery and feels so recognizable and close to home, it s as if you ve written it already in your heart and now you re just reading it on paper She s a great translator of emotions and art.Th [...]

  5. I purchased this collection of poems from The Book Den in Santa Barbara Thank goodness that there are still places one can go to browse and buy actual, physical books I could never imagine reading poetry on a screen The genre requires a certain degree of intimacy facilitated by touch.Martha Ronk s poems remind me of an abstract piece of artwork I might lack the language to adequately describe what I am seeing and feeling Yes, there are various terms I can apply to each poem, but they fall short [...]
