“When Robert Frost defined a poem as being a “momentary stay against confusion,” he was referring to poems like those in Susie Meserve’s collection Little Prayers. These are poems of love, loss, and beauty, but more importantly, how these matter in a life where time is fleeting.” — Michelle Bonczek Evory, author of The Art of the Nipple
