Intelligent, salty, full of extraordinary imagination and linguistic texture, these poems delve deep into the meanings of winter mornings, early peas, rocks, stars, the deaths of animals, and the death of love. A single mother and former factory worker, Zweig is no stranger to hard times. Her poems are precise, original, and moving. Whether she is uncovering the similarities between a cave and a kiss or meditating on murder, Zweigs love of language is exceed only by her taste for truth.
