Launching verge (Guernica Editions) and joined by , author of What Can’t Be Undone (Thistledown Press)
verge begins with a small fox waiting at the river's edge, symbolizing a woman at a turning point in her life. The fox lopes through the poems, at first looking back on the “cold yesterday” of childhood, then travelling with the poet as she moves through various changes and losses in her life. The river holds the past and, in the end, the small fox and the woman find their way across, coming to a place of acceptance and peace.
Lynda Monahan’s poetic world is one in which the natural world and the inner world of the narrator both verge and then merge in metaphor. The poems probe and explore both worlds, often with surprising and luminous results.—Glen Sorestad
