I Was the Jukebox : Poems Paperback / softback


The winner of the 2009 Barnard Women Poets Prize-"These poems are fresh, crisp, and muscular.

They are decisive and fearless. Every object, icon, or historical moment has a soul with a voice.

In these poems these soulful ones elbow their way to the surface of the page, smartly into the contemporary now."-Joy Harjo, prize citation from "The Piano Speaks" For an hour I forgot my fat self, my neurotic innards, my addiction to alignment. For an hour I forgot my fear of rain. For an hour I was a salamander shimmying through the kelp in search of shore, and under his fingers the notes slid loose from my belly in a long jellyrope of eggs that took root in the mud.
