Book Title: To the Wren Nesting

The poems in To the Wren Nesting tell stories launched in random moments such as passing a sexy stranger on the sidewalk, buying a book from a vendor on a Manhattan street corner, dreaming about a Frank Lloyd Wright dog house, or discovering that a pair of Carolina wrens have set up house on a front door wreath. They depict stories grounded in moments from everyday life.
