“In noticing the gentle detail, the human touch, Gloria Monaghan’s poems do not eschew the enrichment of a sumptuous word or academic allusion; neither do they break under the weight of those ornaments in moments of modest relatability, the poet asks familiar questions in pithy ways: How is it possible? What does it mean? Who walked away? When will I forget? Poetry that ignores people may be itself ignored; these poems do not ignore. These poems please.” - Zachary Bos, New England Review of Books
