2021 Poetry d’Amour Anthology

“I loved the personification as a hermit crab scurrying everywhere and the changing panel van’s rusting that leads to the next habitation and shift in lifestyle. Totally accessible, slightly cynical and so ebulliently buoyant!”

Peter Jeffery OAM on “Hermit Crab” by Virginia O’Keefe
