Kirkus Starred Review, Firstborn:
"A fantasy that reads like a lost history tome and deftly examines issues of gender...An engrossing story with welcome depths."

Poetry Friday: Directed


Empty sockets, he
waits to sink poised incisors 
in my dotted lines. 

Lorie Ann Grover, 2012 

So Janet doesn't fret at the dinner table over what this is about: this is the personification of pain directed by sovereignty.

Wait. Is the pain dotted lines? And his empty sockets see the lines?
Here's one:
Words in a line,
Seperately contain meaning,
together picture smoke.
