Poetry. Fueled by questions of faith and desire, and steeped in the Southern Gothic, Meg Wade's SLICK LIKE DARK is a haunting examination of the Southern body and one woman's survival in it. These poems take us to the dark corners of honky-tonks and spin us wide around the room. With a menacing wink, they trace a hard line through trauma's wreckage and demand to know where God belongs in all of this.
