Poetry. With Robert Herrick and Lightnin' Hopkins as her guides, Jennifer Moxley records in these bold new poems midlife's little losses, the subtle joys of a sweet marriage, and the give-and-take of the poet's vocation. Direct in speech, full of wit and erotic exuberance, and never refusing the temptations of a double entendre, Druthers reassesses the purpose and pleasures of poetry. While navigating her way out of "deep blues and dark woods," Moxley has written some of her most masterful work yet.
