Ted Higgs          Archipelago     


Poetry, like life, is “an echo heard in dream,” as Ted Higgs writes in “Looking West.”  In this chapbook, Higgs's poetry echoes all of our lives, no matter if we've never been to Antwerp or Fujisan or a NATO Camp; the truths transcend space and time, find us all, if we're willing to listen.

Yvonne Morris            Mother was a Sweater Girl

In Mother was a Sweater Girl , Yvonne Morris serves up enticing slices of contemporary life.  Whether her subject is a cowboy in a bar, a groom at a wedding, a dream of Vienna, a memory of her sweater-girl mother, or a nervy stranger in the back of a Pinto, in all these vivid, free-verse poems Morris infuses sensuality, imagination, and verve. Typical is the character who "gathers men like / ready berries" and "makes wine from their tears."  In poem after distinctive poem Morris whets the reader's appetite for more.
