Poetry. "Kelle Groom's poems are like underwater songs, sung from the submerged continent of the inner life, the life we don't often expose to the outer world, the one we don't speak of. They have the bemused slightly sad knowledge of lived life, but mainly, these poems come from the muse of soulfulness, they are 'tender-minded'--they balance honesty with perceptiveness of others, which is the true sign of tenderness. They are wry, artful, sad, loving, and moving. A true pleasure"--Tony Hoagland.

Review:

"The Best New Poetry":  Groom likes to set vivid scenes - a fireman speeding to an emergency, a hitchhiker risking a dangerous ride - and then lift them into poetic bliss. ...unexpectedly moving.
--Entertainment Weekly

It is rare to find such a range of emotion, intellect and humor housed in one poet-but here it is, and it is a gift. Groom's is a fiercely intelligent, defiant voice, singing with all her passion and formidable insight.
--The Florida Review
