The Martha Landscapes – eBook
Readers of Colleen Thibaudeau’s selected poems, My Granddaughters Are Combing Out Their Long Hair, will feel at home in The Martha Landscapes, where domestic dearness and the exotic, like strangers, “make their first acquaintance….. in a blur of words.” The cross-relationships that occur, in a poetry of technical virtuosity that feels as easy as breathing, are sensed to be permanent.
