So few grains of happiness
measured against all the dark
and still the scales balance.

The world asks of us
only the strength we have and we give it.
Then it asks more, and we give it.

A devastating batch of lyrical, sensual, spiritual poems—her relative accessibility does not in any way dilute her restless intelligence or the startling clarity of her vision. ( )
