"Let early morning rain clatter up flights of stairs," Seretta Martin writes.  Her poetry breaks open doors, finds shadows in corners, uncovers family secrets, throws back the sheets so lovers can lie uncovered.  It is a poetry of the stories we tried to forget, the stories that form us.  "Is there a soul?" she writes "who doesn't dream of home?"

“Seretta’s poems range from the humorous to the sensual, from more traditional free verse (such as Thunder at Coffee Break) to experimental “nonce” forms, including odd and provocative pseudo-Haikus.”
