“…the edge of the sea,
“Mary Makofske pays keen attention to the arresting details of the physical world and reflects on life—both personal and public— in mature, finely-crafted, intelligent poems that range from charming to poignant, witty to fierce, intimate to philosophical. World Enough, and Time is rich with ‘birth songs and keening, / the music that plays while the god/ is torn and eaten, / the forces that hold the world / together and blow it apart.’”
Ellen Bass, author of Like a Beggar and The Human Line
