Reading & Signing

Airports, larcenous woodchucks, unearned privilege, vaguely menacing gardens: each poem notes a patch of chaos in the poet's life and imposes some kind of pattern on it. Poreba strives to use language skillfully without getting carried away with it; sound is important in these poems, but more important is authenticity, even at the cost of ridiculousness. (What grandmother thinks of her grandchild as “my DNA cunningly packaged”?)

Amy Lemmon writes, “Whether focusing on the natural world, family, or our shared social environment, Poreba brings her crafty skills and sharp eye together with a consciousness of the spiritual element inherent in all experience."
