Double Tongues

Mary Kathleen Hawley

Double Tongues speaks of a world where friends share stories of terror as they cross a quiet park, where death is a trick of light and where a loud radio briefly transforms the waiting room of a jail into a plaza filled with music and dancing. Mary Hawley's poetry celebrates the forces of nature and human sexuality. It approaches the political by illuminating the personal, exploring the complexities of relationships and the traumatic effects of political tyranny, sexism and other forms of oppression.

About the Author
"Double Tongues is a splendid book that compels you to read each poem twice." --Dean Shavit
