From the identify poem:
pink as useless shrimp, the unborn curls in its tide pool--seed pearl
whose mom lusters over irritant love it's too past due to dislodge;
little anemone, shrinking from contact. So and holds separate what it such a lot heavily binds.
"Ms. Greger's poems ensue on the element of come upon among the brain and the area of topic. . . . And it's the resistance of the genuine and the expanding urgency the poet feels in attempting to extinguish her solitude . . . that make those poems emotional."--The long island instances publication Review

In the laundromat window's condensation, someone has lettered a name now weeping and pressed a nose territorially. Wet, black is giving away its combination of submerged blues and reds—wild blackberries overrunning a foundation, overripe late summer, bled into my hands, their last resistance denying surrender with exaggerated wounds. Rose of regret, rose of desire—in the motions of love, the smooth machinery disengages the mind—winter solstice, a beveled window fractures into another order profligate rays out of habit thought whole.
Its sweeping claims shush the cries of coyotes driven toward chicken coops under the hunter taking starry aim. Starting in the dark a Russian family unable to afford a horse would spend much of Sunday walking to Mass, the rest walking back, thankful for the kneeling in between. Wind-borne, wind-sifted, dirt carpets the floorboards of the theater where a man late for a duel assures his fiancee nothing's wrong that can't be remedied by coffee. A glass of jam-sweetened tea rusts under the gels. Such small measures, just snow stacking a house of cards at stage door, lashing epaulets to fences and the shoulders of a scarecrow, scout for no winter army.
