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.
