As Sandra de Helen proved in her previous collection, Desire Returns for a Visit: Intimate Poems of Lesbian Love, she has a keen ear for language and nuance. The poems in this new volume are accessible and clever while also being insightful. This is the kind of collection you can read over and over and enjoy it fresh every time.
“Irreverent while still relevant. Poignant, pungent, playfully pugnacious and peppered with poultry. Sandra de Helen’s light verse (which includes letters to Santa and martians) illuminates the silliest corners of her skylarking sapphist psyche.” –G.L. Morrison, poet, lover of words, and writer of short fiction
