Little Knitted Sister

by Ellen Foos


I simply can't resist a poet whose prayer is 'Give us this day our daily bread/in the form of toast'—or who gives drowned virgins a second chance to 'tread the mucky earth.' Ellen Foos' work combines startling candor with effervescent wit. She makes being human seem breathtakingly easy, a difficult task in a world as complicated and cluttered as our own. Read her and you can't help but be refreshed. This is a book of small, big, and offbeat pleasures.

—Elaine Equi, author of The Cloud of Knowable Things

These poems open with the relentless push of small flowers. They grow in a tight corner plot bright with iris, marigold, and brave truth.

—Michael Brown, author of The Man Who Makes Amusement Rides and Susquehanna
