Heart in a Jar (Paperback)
"Every poem in this book is a like a heart in a jar. Kathleen's superb eye and exacting craft rides on the power of images that throttle the reader off the page, yet one foot is so firmly rooted in the real world, we feel incredibly satisfied that we took a wild journey and came back home safely. These poems are a great ticket, existing as tremendous short scripts for the films she directs in our heads."
--Michael Delp, Lying in the River's Dark Be
