|The Key: Lady Grizzly and Sir Charles Otter|
by Ice Gayle Johnson
Poets Wear Prada, 2012
I am happy and proud to announce "The Key" by Ice Gayle Johnson. It is profoundly beautiful: an unexpected turn of the lock. Hidden chambers of the heart lead from a girlhood kitchen to the panorama of windows that survive the woman's adult life. These poems follow Joel Allegretti's "Europa/Nippon/New York," recently released, a log -- part cata-, part travel -- chronicling metaphysical peregrinations of a 21st-century explorer and bricoleur. Available at Amazon. Coming soon: Patricia Carragon's "The Cupcake Chronicles," a confectionery tale for the ages--all ages.
