Kirk, Juanita Books1993 0-7734-2798-8
The title of this volume has been taken from a Robert Browning poem. This may account for the sticks, stones, arrows, and juxtaposed subtleties and energetic language of the poetry. Love poems elicit various reactions from readers, but the love poems of Juanita Kirk make up a volume which is closely related to an autobiography. Acting out love is a dangerous thing in these days of postmodern criticism, but Kirk joyfully speaks her mind to her many loves, and she defies any of them to find themselves on the pages.
