Romp and Ceremony

Jeannie E Roberts

  • $ 2000

“Another delightful collection, full of Roberts’ finally tuned ear, microscopic eye and sharp wit. Enjoy.” –Bruce Taylor, Poet Laureate of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA “Romp and Ceremony is a fun book with lines like “O praised be tomatoes / noodles and sauce / let there be lobster / salmon and squash” and “She was a tenderhearted woman who suffered / from tendinitis and lived in a tenement with tenebrous / tendencies.” Jeannie E. Roberts is a sound poet capable of rich music as in “Here, the push of life meets layers / of remains, greets the collective decay / with grace and stance” and “Before evening pulled apricot / and lemon leapt from corn / horizon, there, there you were― // lifting, shifting, from basil / to railing, arugula to ailing / tomato, and back again.” A book for all those who admire the sobriety of ceremony and appreciate the intoxication of romp.” –Bill Yarrow, author of Blasphemer
