PREVIEW

ABOUT THIS BOOK: 

Mary McGinnis loves this world where we are, where “the first March ants can drift up your arm”; where “sassy women hold democracy up”; and “wells have never spoken before”. In one small chapbook, her poems move from lyrical to wildly imaginative, funny, and irreverent, to facing love, loss, and letting go. Lover and master of the acrostic poem, McGinnis is “an evangelist for words”. “Look for beauty, never forsake it,” Mary McGinnis exhorts us, “it will touch you like the breath of willow/ Even as earthquakes and deception fill the news, even as fascism/ eats at our hearts”….“it was a mountain all along that called me”.

Jane Lipman, Author of On the Back Porch of the Moon
Winner of the 2013 New Mexico/Arizona Book Award
for Poetry Book and a 2013 NM Press Women’s Award
