    And
    Book Description:

    From the title poem:

    Ampersand

    pink as dead shrimp, the unborn curls in its tide pool--seed pearl

    whose mother lusters over irritant love it's too late to dislodge;

    little anemone, shrinking from touch. So and holds separate what it most closely binds.

    Review:

    "Ms. Greger's poems take place at the point of encounter between the mind and the world of matter. . . . And it is the resistance of the real and the increasing urgency the poet feels in trying to extinguish her solitude . . . that make these poems emotional."--The New York Times Book Review
