Magnetic Repulsion, 100 Poems From Desire to Disgust, is a collection of poetry that keeps pulling you back to read more. It begins where most relationships do, right from your first heart twisting clean thought of promised romance, and pulls you along to the final charred burning of your partner's belongings. Marshmallows, optional, although highly recommended to keep you afloat in a sea of metaphors. Patricia A. Hawkenson shares the experiences of powerful attractions that keep dragging couples together and then yanking them apart. From that first dance, where toes tangle languidly, and shoulders create a soft place to fall, through dating and suspicion, arguments and slamming the door, this collection covers it all while uncovering just enough to please and tease.
