Poems written in the late 1990's - early 2000's.
Vega's primary topics are people she's known, nature, places she's been (Italy, for example), and socio-political issues. If her writing has a flaw, it's that she sometimes lets her emotions / political biases get the better of her. When this happens, she can come off as silly. But as a whole, it's a worthy body of work, even if a lot of the pieces aren't my type.
These five poems stood out to me:
"Patrick Nolan" and "Blind Numbers Over the Hill", both which seem to have been inspired by her work in prisons.
"Postcard from Napoli" and "Verona - Heidelberg Express", from her travels.
"Across the Table" - the final piece in the collection.
I shall leave you with this:words that float like birds on the water
