“Artist-poet Bridget Seley Galway’s poems show the painter’s eye with their details from her rich life growing up in New York City and Provincetown with artists, writers and junkies... More > and her more recent life in Somerville, Massachusetts. Beach grass, hot sun on tarred rooftops, fire hydrants spraying water, cold concrete walls, a babe in arms, birds on telephone wires through a window, darkened corners with heroin addicts shooting up. The physical details are interwoven with a deep longing that comes from many losses along the way. But the sense of loss never overwhelms her love for the people in her life and for the beauty of the physical world.”  — Lawrence Kessenich< Less
