Poetry. COMMODORE, Waters' third poetry collection, is a book about care, both the two-way street of it and the hierarchy created by it. Or it's about coming very close to your subject, intent on discerning shades of sentiment, full of nostalgia for things you didn't really enjoy when they happened, concerned care might be an exploitable weakness, even as its cultivation becomes the only way to attract the mercy you will inevitably require.
Jacqueline Waters is the author of COMMODORE (Ugly Duckling Presse), ONE SLEEPS THE OTHER DOESN'T (Ugly Duckling Presse) and A MINUTE WITHOUT DANGER (Adventures in Poetry). More recent work has appeared in Chicago Review, Dreamboat, Fanzine, Harper's, Little Star and The American Reader.Author City: SANTA MONICA, CA USA
