There's an 'every-day people' quality to her writing. She doesn't come across as an ivy-walled intellectual or an elitist. I found a lot of pieces to be a bit boring, though not from lack of writing ability. There are a few stand-out poems, as follows:
"Recurring" - an urban street scene
"Somewhere in a Box Marked Keep" - about "looking for the words"
"Q to the 6 Train"
Both of these are related to romantic love.
I leave you with this:It's just ash dusting the parking lot, like dandruff brushed from the shoulder of an itchy god.
