Yet again, she has masterfully orchestrated a confessional collection of poetry resurrected from the gritty observations of everyday life.Her accounts of love, loss, suffering, and the beautiful agility of the human spirit have been well-crafted from front-seat observations and five a.m. coffee sessions.Stacy has a remarkable sense for detail and a dramatic, unique skill for wrapping the everyday into metaphorical sentiments. She masters this gift in the poem Mountain Parkway as she remembers an old love and simultaneously pays homage to her homeland:The summer is passingLike a long arm swayingFrom the passenger seatOf a car on a four-lane highway.And I ride alongside youLike a virtue, a wild nagThat grinds my eyesightTo the moon-ground recollectionsOf dreams that buzzed in JuneNow as splintered as rosewoodAnd littered of memoriesThat irk my nervous handsLike a nose itch that wont wipe away.Her raw, metaphorical take on life and relationships reminds me of a younger, softer version of Sharon Olds.-Tammi Watts, Educator from WisconsinOnce she pulls you in, its impossible not to complete a poem. Her words read as sentimental, metaphorical eulogies to everyday life. I cant read a book by Mar without pausing to pay thanks to even the experience of the mundane.-Jennifer, Blog Writer and educator of Culinary Arts, from New JerseyRemarkable would be a bland understatement. This young poet is as intelligent and creative as she is touching and heart-rending. She adores life, she embraces its scars...-Shelley Wright, Mixed Media artist from Brittish ColumbiaShe is a woman warrior with a brilliant insight. How can you not appreciate that?-Felicia, Student and Writer, from KentuckyHer metaphors and symbolism are absolutely breath-taking! Pick this book up, you will not regret the words that await you from this Indie author!-Elizabeth Ward, Educator, from CanadaThis is real poetry. This is individualism in its raw aura. These word are life, themselves.-Erica, Student, Nigeria
