Description

Whether considering the simplicity of a butterfly in flight or the terror of a cancer diagnosis, Heidi Greco confronts the world head-on, yet always with the fresh eyes of the stranger in our midst. The issues she addresses belong to the world; the settings she employs are international. At times funny and irreverent, these are pieces that dissect relationships, poems that delve as easily into the mysteries of nature as they do into the intricacies of daily living-encounters we immediately recognize. But whether serious or fun in their approach, her penetrating and unsentimental eye is always there, steadfast on the goods.

"In the beauty of the language and the striking images, there is a pervasive sadness, a sub-text of depression. ...'Rattlesnake Plantain' is a collection of poems about loving, not being loved. Baudelaire understood." - Prairie Fire
