There are poems in Your Turn that are political, outward-looking, recording inequities; others revisit literary and visual artists and other sections contain more intimate, personal poems whose theme might be summarized as the double self. Whether poems speak to those no longer here or the poet's own mortality, Your Turn affirms our trust and conviction. In their surprising insights and language these poems wake us up.
