This book of poems is divided into three sections, complimentary of each other. Wallin writes with abandon in free verse and prose in a highly original voice. From the poem “Orange Crush”: “Orange traffic cones, orange buoys, orange life-vests: / Orange will save you. Like Anita Bryant who / tried to save America with orange juice.” These poems contain a dash of realism along with unprecedented imagination. She is able to embed images into your very soul and dredge up intimacy, empathy, mystery, and so much more. Her words are unexpected which makes them all the more refreshing to read.
