 About the Book 

Young lovers tangle, tumble, and dance their way through the urban landscape of the poems in this collection. They lose and rediscover each other in cafés and bars, over latte or beer, while the city watches and waits for solitude to reassert itself.MoreYoung lovers tangle, tumble, and dance their way through the urban landscape of the poems in this collection. They lose and rediscover each other in cafés and bars, over latte or beer, while the city watches and waits for solitude to reassert itself. The three sections of the collection, Impossible Permanence, Tonic & Brevity, and Litany of Desire, allude to the darker undercurrent that adds the taint of reality to these poems of spring and beauty. As the poet suggests with her title, the book is one to be opened slowly, savored like a surprise gift from a lover who will inevitably be forgotten, even while the gift remains.
