Summary
A treasure trove of new poems by one of our most sought-after poets: poems that range from descriptions of the Detroit of her childhood to her current life on Cape Cod, from deep appreciations of the natural world to elegies for lost friends and relationships, from a vision of her Jewish heritage to a hard-hitting take on today{u2019}s political ironies. In her trademark style, combining the sublime with the gritty, Marge Piercy describes the night she was born: �the sky burned red / over Detroit and sirens sharpened their knives. / The elms made tents of solace over grimy / streets and alley cats purred me to sleep.� She writes in graphic, unflinching language about the poor, banished now by politicians because they are no longer �real people like corporations.� There are elegies for her peer group of poets, gone now, whose work she cherishes but from whom she cannot help but want more. There are laments for the suicide of dolphins and for her beloved cats, as she remembers �exactly how I loved each.� She continues to celebrate Jewish holidays in compellingly original ways and sings praises of her marriage and the small pleasures of daily life
