In Caves – Doritt Carroll – 2010

In Caves
by Doritt Carroll

In her first book of poems, Doritt Carroll deals in simple, direct language with themes of isolation and longing. Like snapshots, her poems capture details that reflect a unique and quirky perspective.

Whether it’s her sanity that ”stalks out like a cat/its high tail/torquing” or her regrets that come home to roost ”flapping on the fence posts/gossiping like sisters,” her poems confront in an honest yet humorous way the unbridgeable gaps that divide one human being from another.
