LaForge's poems read like a catalogue of the curious. She creates not one but
many worlds with deft language , stark images and a wide, gaping eye. Nothing
is off limits as these poems tackle Putin, ankles, youth, teeth, Jagger, old
age, sisterhood and other delights and vagaries of the living and the dead.
Part mythology and fable, part prayer and dirge , part telescopic and up close
and personal, these magnificent poems resonate, throb, and fairly hum with the
the fascinating details of the way lives are lived. ~ Michelle Reale"
I write posts on this blog for two reasons. I want to promote my own work (what writer doesn't), and I want to share my love of the written and visual arts. In the past nine years although I've written fiction and non-fiction, I've been focused mainly on poetry. I am interested in hearing from writers and readers. I am actively seeking to expand my vision of what is possible as a poet/writer/artist through shared self expression. The effect of words and images on our psyches can be profound.
