Poetry. ROYAL BLUE CAR confronts the complexities of mother and daughter relations, the intergenerational transmission of psychic trauma in the bonds of mothers and infants.
"ROYAL BLUE CAR is Philip K. Dick's mastery surrogated into poetry, an unexpected journey into the mysteries of our selves and of our universe in which time and space overlap, slide, come back again with new coordinates to be set and learned. Sixty-four eight line cantos that end with the word "despair" becomes the life that binds Posamentier's mother to her daughter, the poet, in a series of colorful images only the most vivid dreams can provide, even if the poet underlines the lack of dreams. The reader learns that both mother and child, the two protagonists together with "I", have died, although like phoenixes, they trace one sequence after the other and re-live them in each canto."—Anny Ballardini
"...as long as we sing, we live. These poems are...vibrant, obsessive, crazy with sorrow, but beautifully alive...the singing is the point." —Jack Foley
Evelyn Posamentier's books include Poland At The Door and brainiography. Her poems have appeared in the New York Quarterly, Drunken Boat, 3 a.m. Magazine, Free Verse, The Quarterly Journal of Ideology and the American Poetry Review, among others, and included in numerous anthologies.
