Kerri McCaffrey’s poetry is songful and pleasing. Kerri, who grew up on one side of the gender line and crossed over, explores the harmony we can find with nature and the world by living in truth. “I grew tired of life in a snow globe/all perfect flakes and ice/…And when the globe broke/my whole world changed.” Carry Kerri’s book with you as a sort of pause—as a beautiful reset. As perspective.
