Love Letters to a Paper City: Poems of History, Myth and Un-Forgetting
Melinda Thomas, author
This collection of poems explores the relationship between humans and geography, that tender place where history, myth and the senses merge in a flash of understanding. In this book, Ms. Thomas creates a new world out of the existing one, a place populated by pantry moths, snakes, bats, mountains--and also snarky Chihuahuas, thieves, suicidal fish, and even Buddha. Whether we find ourselves in a bakery, church, factory of ally--alone or with others, these poems invite us to experience what is both present and possible.
