For the pain, through which I grope my way in dazed wakefulness.
The void, where my tongue-tips catch the essence of a hungering moon.
A collection of free verses written over the years in various stages of a young woman’s life, Black Cat and other poems is a journey of self-discovery, awareness and growth.
Each poem is a story culled from an existence well savored, much like a cat’s fabled nine lives. There are tales of lust, loss, melancholy, decay and awakening.
Author Shirley Siaton gives her heart, body and soul to the reader bare-bones, with no inhibitions or pretensions.
