From book’s back cover:
“Each poem stands alone but also within one of three life phases with many lessons learned and maturity reached. Thompson-Slaughter’s poetic excellence shines and allows readers of all ages to appreciate her unique yet universal lessons and thoughts on social, political, and intensely personal topics. All may learn from and appreciate Denise Thompson-Slaughter’s style and messages.
“Savor slowly the gourmet buffet that is Denise Thompson-Slaughter’s second collection of poetry. Her ability, in the economy of poetry, to bring to life the evolution of suburban mid-century routines to the revolution of the sixties, is extraordinary. Her wit, sometimes dry, at other times pure, post-modern jive, endears you to her brand of fun. – Elaine Heveron, Not Every Woman Swooned, and Email to Cleveland (Plain View Press)
“This collection is easy to read, but hard to put down. Denise is a multi-talented writer. She makes the reader feel her sadness, learn new things, nod in agreement, stop and think, or chuckle out loud. As a Geezer myself, I could identify with many pieces. Yet youngsters (under 50) should chuckle, too. Will they laugh with us or at us? At least they will learn history lessons that aren’t taught in any school. – Sue Vogt, Dinosaur Parade (Spirited Muse Press)”
