New review of Open Slowly

Open Slowly, by Dayle Furlong [1]Serena Agusto-Cox over at Savvy Verse & Wit [2] has posted a new review of Dayle Furlong’s Open Slowly [3].

From the review [4]:

[T]here seems to be a sinister undercurrent or a blatant dark side that emerges in some of these poems, illuminating the truth that nature is not all beauty and peace, but also darkness and violence.  Furlong’s lines are not abstract mysteries, but the poems as a whole reveal a mystery or hidden truth that causes readers to rethink their initial impressions at the beginning of the poems.  In a way many of these poems discuss the impermanence of memory and the past, those people, places, and events that we think we will always remember, but that grow fuzzier with time and blur into nothingness

She calls Open Slowly [3] “a mesmerizing collection of poems” and includes several excerpts from the collection. Read the full review on her blog [4].
