“This debut collection of senryu, haiku, tanka, and haibun showcases Lorraine Padden’s satirical wit in the service of her deep sensitivity to contemporary social issues, from domestic violence to racial and gender inequity to homelessness. Many of these land with the force of a gut punch or elicit an uncomfortable laugh. Her bright-eyed attentiveness to language shines through these well-crafted, compassionate poems, giving voice to the failings of humanity while not letting herself (or the reader!) off the hook.”
Kristen Lindquist, author of It Always Comes Back, winner of the 2020 Snapshot Press e-Chapbook Award
