Poetry. YES, THE DUCKS WERE REAL deals with relationships of all kinds, as well as, what goes into day-to-day survival—things that concern everyone and things everyone can relate to. In these poems Lerner goes from being an observer, as in "The Girls from Hell," to focusing on her own life, which she has successfully mythologized in order to reflect on our fast changing times. YES, THE DUCKS WERE REAL is a collection of modern tales that will have you reading and relating and reverberating into your own mind's mythologies.
