Barbara coaxes the reader to strip away layers of perceived thoughts and judgments, word by word and line by line. Et viola ... we are naked before ourselves, and feeling quite human - right here, and right now.


Read these poems however you like: in book order, randomly, to yourself, out loud to others, on the subway or bus, or in your bad at night. You will find new dimensions to this    “shapeshifting” poetry with every new reading.

Most easily described here as encompassing the three V's of poetry; vibrant, visual and vital.


Barbara Mercer’s poetry speaks best for itself, so I will just leave you with two simple lines from here book ... two lines which ... yeah:


The moon slips silently into space


And you assure me
