port of call
“There’s much to admire in Davida Singer’s strong new book port of call—the staccato beat of New York City, the snowy fields of Vermont, where vertigo and the ephemeral live side by side in a flashback with 9/11,
sequoias, and “cosmic rift/ kaleidoscopic.” Language is a springboard,
offering judgment and choice, and metaphor is both autobiographical and historic, all movingly bearing witness to her time and ours.”
“Singer’s keen eye masterfully splits punctuated moments of love and loss, hovers above them, and gives wings and lightness to even the darkest of emotions. These poems are full of heart and hope. There is a sly wisdom here, and I am happily the wiser for having come to know her rich, incisive, generous words.”
“Davida Singer’s port of call is a delight. In her chronicles of one woman’s life at the turn of the millennium, she includes us all.”
