genre

A book of dream-like urgency, easily read in one sitting, full of unexpected similes and metaphors.

Sample Verse
”he said/’people think you’re spacey’ full/of space I thought like grace”

Pop Culture Reference
”Audrey Hepburn wore a size 10 shoe all her adult life/the glistening instep a white-glazed terra-cotta…”

Bottom Line
Owen’s long-lined poems convey sharp-witted realism mingled with openhearted curiosity about nature, love, and loss.
