Poetry. Winner of the 1998 New Issues Poetry Prize. The poet's sense of wonder is contagious whether she views the world from her seat on a train, from the window of her apartment, or from the streets of the city. Through a subtle, mediated surrealism, Mörling reins in the urban landscapes of New York, drawing the reader into her meditations on the temporal and the spatial, on the language itself.

Author City: Long Island, NY USA
