$12; 40 pgs.
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

I have waited a long time to publish these two poets. When I first broached the subject of publishing a collection of poetry by John Macker, I had no idea that it would also include the work of the gifted (and award winning) poet Lawrence Welsh. These two men, one from Santa Fe, New Mexico and one from El Paso, Texas, have been pivotal in creating a school of Southwestern Poetry which was inspired by the likes of Tony Scibella and Tony Moffeit.
This is a solid, 50 poem collection. All stand alone poems, yet all linked to each other as if pointing out the intrinsic influence of both the people’s and landscape that unites these two poets. New Mexico is aptly named “the land of enchantment” and it has served as a backdrop for this fantastic page turner! You won’t be disappointed!
“In this collaboration, you’ll find two completely different ways to put words on the page. I was Larry’s idea to join forces, so to speak, to present differing styles right next to each other, up close and personal, to communicate not just a vision, but an assemblage of visions. We realize that part of our job description is to, as Lorca explained, break open the pomegranite (the English language translation for Lorca’s beloved Granada), and discover ‘the blood of the wounded earth.’ Its passions and mysteries.” — from the Introduction by John Macker.
