Seeing Flowers

“Nobody sees a flower, really, it is so small it takes time, we haven’t time, and to see takes time, like to have a friend takes time.”
― Georgia O’Keeffe

BOOK REVIEW by Juliana Lightle

Evidence of Flossing: What We Leave Behind provides an unexpected metaphor for individual life, culture, and so much more. Nearly all the poems are accompanied with a photograph, often of trash in which lays a dental flosser (yes, one of those instruments with which you floss your teeth) with date and location. Flossing is supposed to prevent anything from being left behind. Hence, the title brings up an unusual play on words.” – Juliana Lightle
