This book of poems is meant to make the reader both laugh and think. Very human themes are explored in word play and invite the reader to view the common in an uncommon way. Spiritual values are both snuck in and also bluntly displayed. Most importantly, the author has fun while she writes and would like the reader to be able to laugh at some serious topics.
A Year Long “One Night Stand”
Darkness fled from the match,
leaving your eyes and my reflection
caught in soft marmalade light.
Warm-skinned, we inhaled each other,
until our candled shadows overlapped.
We swam in dark shapes, wading through dim fear
and drowned our separate selves.
The wall stilled, and we slept cast as one.
Morning peeled us apart.
Our single shadow broke in two.
