Sensible Plainness

One hundred poems selected by Anne Waldman.

“Quotidian angst, deep withering wit, homily wisdom and a brave, high tone reside in Sensible Plainess. Bobbie Louise Hawkins brings her evolved prose ear and eye to this subtle range of poems. One hears the pins drop and can’t wait for the next ‘bon mot’ verse. These are the quips, asides and beauty of a brilliant stylist.”
