PRESALES of my latest poetry chapbook Silence Has A Name are now available through Finishing Line Press via this link:
Many thanks to poets Cynthia Atkins and Douglas A. Fowler for their wonderful blurbs, which will appear on the back of the book:
"I read these poems early on a green morning, sitting in my backyard of wildflowers, oak and moss. Each poem complies with the scene and joins in with a counterpoint needed to overcome memory. They stay with me at night when I look up at the stars and hear jazz from a workbench radio."
-- Douglas A. Fowler
Condensed Matter And Other States of Mind
Finishing Line Press, 2005
"The poems of Arya F. Jenkins open up an eyelet view into a familial world laden with the delicate flux of human relationships. This speaker engages and invites us in with the compelling ardors of language, making music out of sorrow and decay, imbuing it with heft and permanence. The poet shows us the gifts that only memory can provide when infused with the honesty of insight. These spare narratives stir our own ghosts, 'their hearts bleat out unholy stories,' and compel us to look for hope and redemption."
-- Cynthia Atkins
In the Event of Full Disclosure
WordTech Communications, 2013
