Item description for Desire Lines: New and Selected Poems (American Poets Continuum) by Lola Haskins...
The poems in Desire Lines, both new and selected, give shape to the desires we must nourish if we are to retain our compassion. The poems collaborate as a series of variations on the theme of desire, much like the way a motif weaves through a piece of music or a thread through a tapestry. Haskins presents autobiographical poems and poems that give voice to other women, both historical and imagined.
Lola Haskins has published six full-length poetry collections. A musician and dancer, Haskins shared the title role in "Mata Hari," a full-length ballet, whose libretto she wrote for Dance Alive , a touring dance company. She has read her poetry on National Public Radio and BBC radio.

Desire Lines ------------------ Oct 7, 2004
Lola Haskins' poetry intrigues and startles, turning appearances inside out with elegant and unflinching grace. I have always loved her work, have read her for years.....and yet, on reading her new poems in Desire Lines, feel an excitement akin to discovering a new and essential voice, one that is profound, deeply haunting, and artistically exquisite. This is a book for the long journey....for where the road turns....
