Poetry. "If the landscape of Gail Martin's poems is a domestic one, then it is Emily Dickinson's wild domesticity, where innocuous-looking teapots contain tempests, where lemons stacked in a white bowl imply grief. If these are the poems of a mother, of a wife-which they are-then they make the claim that motherdom, wifedom, is the kingdom of God"-Diane Seuss. "Restraint and skill merge with genuine anguish to create poems that are sure to hold and move us"-- Conrad Hilberry. Gail Martin, a Michigan native, grew up in Flint. She was selected by Alice Fulton as the 1999 Winner of the National Poet Hunt sponsored by The MacGuffin.
