Sheryl H. Simler | Parenthesis




Not unlike Emily Dickinson’s poetry, many of the poems in this collection also seem to be important for what they purposely do not say; the spaces between the lines demand thought, and then you think again while reading the line.
Dr. Alfred Dorn, director of The World Order of Narrative and Formalist Poets, former Vice President of the Poetry Society of America



Whether sharing a story, amusing us, or asking important questions, Simler’s striking poetry often has an eye for the urban, and always an ear to the heart.
Patricia Kelly, poet, Tarotphile and blogger


With her direct style, sly humor, and subtle warmth, Sheryl H. Simler takes you places you thought you’d been before and makes you look again.
Sondra Audin Armer

Entanglement

West 4th Street subway couple

   out of luck:

           his green Mohawk,

                  caught

     in her pierced eyebrow ring,

              halts

                       their parting kiss.
