COLOR ALL MAPS NEW: POEMS

ABOUT THE BOOK

A grandmother's beignet recipe passed on to a granddaughter, a lost lake restored by heavy rain, a dead father's wisdom returned in dreams--over and again, the poems in COLOR ALL MAPS NEW offer revision and restoration, light and hope. In turns personal, ecological, cultural, and fantastic, these poems promise new maps to navigate damaged territories.
