A Run at the Moon
by Jean Sheppard
Often whimsical, sometimes disturbing, these poems revel in language and image and myth. Whether pausing over the moment of a goldfish's passing, speculating on the contents of a goddess's wallet, testing the sharp edges of memory or exploring the significance of skin, the poems in this collection find the odd in the ordinary and the luminous in the lost.
Watch out. The sting is in the tail.
