About Their Work:

For those of us who’ve lived through the vicissitudes of the past several decade--on this coast, in this city--and who’ve lived with our private ups and downs for a while longer, Jeanne Morel’s recent work will strike a chord of recognition. For all their verbal playfulness and interest in shape and structure, what marks these poems is a sharp eye for the distinctive disruptions of place and space seen on foot or by car, and the deft way they find the  ‘disjunct,’ to paraphrase Amy Clampitt, in bird and gas pump and tomatoscapes. Along with this cosmos of handpicked detritus, they offer a deceptively offhand engagement. And perhaps an opening or closing bouquet. Listen up!
