Reviews - What do customers think about A Woman Milking?
An enthusiastically recommended compendium of her distinctive verse Feb 3, 2007
Crisp, articulate, deftly woven and engagingly presented, Marcia Slatkin's poetry reflects the conditions of hard physical labor, deep connections to animals, and intimate appreciation with respect to the rhythms of life. "A Woman Milking" is an enthusiastically recommended compendium of her distinctive verse that will aptly serve to introduce and document her very special talent as a word smith capable of reaching into the minds and hearts. 'Mated': She comes home drenched/and reeking of buck./tossing her head, she stalks/toward feed like a queen.//The other does gather and cling,/nuzzling his smell, grunting/the gossip of hunger//as up she springs,/leaping rocks like sunrise,/beaming.
