Poetry. "Whether taking surreal leaps and bounds over the trash and beauty of cityscapes or drawing gnomic liness from woodland views, Sharon Mesmer's poems are timed to rise with those moments when 'things are always beginning or becoming' or to settle in 'a way to hear Hope talking or maybe listening.' At turns intimate or boisterously satiric, THE VIRGIN FORMICA can gently detonate or erupt, carrying readers along on ripples or shockwaves"--Paul Violi. Sharom Mesmer's other poetry collections include ANNOYING DIABETIC BITCH, Vertigo Seeks Affinities, Half Angel, Half Lunch, and Crossing Second Avenue. Her prose collections are Ma Vie Yonago, In Ordinary Time and The Empty Quarter. Lonely Tylenol, an art book in collaboration with the painter David Humphrey, was published in 2003. She is a two-time New York Foundation for the Arts fellow in poetry.
