“I love how the poems bring me back and forth into the work in a way that I might not have experienced otherwise. I’ve grown to love Mary’s work through Elizabeth’s words; they take me into each piece, like going through a doorway to a larger space filled with things I had not expected. My experience of her work has changed and I will appreciate it differently, more deeply. Usually, I have favorite pieces in a book of poetry but I love all of Elizabeth’s poems. And Mary is a genius at gesture, especially hands, what a master.”
