December 3, 2019 — Shirley is grateful for yet another positive review of Mercy! Thank you to Mom Egg Review for the latest write up.
In her review, Sherre Vernon writes:
The poems in Mercy are sparse, like the barest exhale… When there is standard form in this breathy collection, it is couplets, or couplets interspersed with a single line, as if to say: us two, us two; just me. In their shape and pacing, these poems are the fleeting hope that winds itself through grief and the loneliness of the grieving.
