2007 Winner of the Pat Lowther Award and a Lambda Literary Award

As meditative practices focus on the axis of breath, these poems focus on the moment of action, of thought, on the flux of speech.

"The light settled on her brow & she opened the marmalade."

Read as 3.5 stars. A very strong collection.

Unfortunately, I don't feel particularly qualified to give an in-depth review as I am probably missing a good deal of the references as I have not read a lot of Virginia Woolf.

Even still, it was enjoyable and I look forward to reading more by this poet.
