Poetry. "Lodged in various locales, whether urban or rural, earthbound or on the open sea, answering a landscape, a family memory, or the vagaries of love, the poems of CAUSEWAY are always informed by an honest buoyancy of spirit that can mix 'the scent of lilacs' with 'smokers' coughs,' as imagination testifies to the hard-won realization that 'Even in these / toxic times, we live, we thrive.'"--Eamon Grennan. "Again and again the poet attempts to reconcile herself to 'the everyday obscene,' always 'searching for home / in a thrift shop find, something a mother, / not yours or mine, left behind.' CAUSEWAY celebrates the probability of such human connection in poems taut and insistent and resonant with desire. When Sexton writes, speaking for us all, '[T]he ones / who love me love me, god knows why,' we know she's not quite joking"--Michael Waters.
