Common Place Ecstasies: Poems free pdf With sublime poetic insight, Wendy McGrath takes us on a tour of everyday objects and events that celebrates what many of us take for granted. A truck-stop diner is obliquely referenced to the subject of Vincent van Gogh's The Night Cafe. A refracted glimpse of a typical suburban couple is transmuted into a modern-day version of a wedding portrait by Jan van Eyck. Old brown boots lined with newspapers sum up the hard life of a construction worker. Tupperware is no ordinary plastic in scattered snapshots from a single day in the life of an outwardly ordinary family.
