Sand & Traffic
By Pauline Powers Uchmanowicz
Uchmanowicz’s poetry lives in its form and its formalism enlivens the line and space between images “in perpetual flight.” Breathless accents, a parade of local color, deep sympathy with existence, the work is a continual reaffirmation of the poet’s need for life.
“Uchmanowicz portrays a ‘year-rounder’s’ Cape Cod of fickle weather, untimely deaths, and gritty sensuality. Her taut, precise poems are vivid enough to grab a reader at first sight and rich enough to reward a second reading.”
