This book is divided into three sections, A Room of Dark Women, Blood, and Nailed to the Sky. Each section is different, and each section is similar.
These poems are filled with rhythm of a heart-beating drum, with woman-spirit, and a rich involvement of language. Sweet is a Northwest poet living in or near Seattle. She was born in Albuquerque, and her poems show us the richness of the desert and the lushness of Puget Sound country.
Sweet knows language, and how to use it. This book should not be missed by anyone who enjoys language and poetry.
