“These poems wear masks well—not to hide, but to reveal. . . . She draws from specific experience a larger portrait of what it means to be a woman today.”

Katharyn Machan Aal

“[Makofske] writes poems that seem simpler than they are because they are immediately accessible, strongly female, directly rooted in the little and large pleasures and pains of a woman’s life.”

Marge Piercy

“Makofske’s poems…deal with darkness with a steady and reliable cadence, a subtle and dependable music, and with the rituals of existence which often give our lives meaning.”
