This collection is a celebration of life, an acknowledgement of heart-ache, a searing series of poems that manages  “to step out of the in-between / where past and present twist / like filaments around each / other…”  Cristina Trapani-Scott’s poetry is musical, visual, sensual, and full of brilliant observations and precisely-rendered moments.  This is work you’ll read again and again, and want to share.  The world this poet brings to the page is odd, and very lovely, and her poetry is as full of risks as the act of loving one another is, and just as important, remarkable, and full of big and little miracles.
