Dark Alphabet PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Dark Alphabet free pdf In works whose subjects range from the religious to the carnal, the whimsical to the foreboding, Jennifer Maier's debut collection of poems, "Dark Alphabet", explores the everyday mysteries of our common experience with humor, lucidity, and an unblinking yet compassionate eye. Whether occasioned by a song overheard on the car radio, a packet of risque postcards from the 1920's, a conversation with a dead parent, or the behavior of ducks in mating season, each poem sets off on a journey that ranges far from its origins, arriving with the reader in a clearing at dusk, in a place of wise good humor and somber grace.
