Jennifer Houle's second collection, Virga, is a departure?or perhaps, more accurately, a return to a distinctly feminine and feminist mythos. Witchy, sensuous, and urgent, the poems collected here are shot through with lore, love, and determination, reflecting the preoccupations of young?and not so young?womanhood
