Racing Hummingbirds

Racing Hummingbirds - Jeanann Verlee

Verlee is my kind of poet, and I would venture my kind of person as well. This work is angry at times, beautiful often, and almost always raw. I could relate to much of it, both the ugliness and the elation. I would recommend this book to those seeking contemporary female poets who aren't afraid to be brutal. It is a brilliant kick to the heart.
