Hesitating Once to Feel Glory

Hesitating Once to Feel Glory

Maleea Acker
$19.95


Maleea Acker’s dauntless new poetry collection is crafted with emotion and bold style.

Any day now I shall be released to the Bangladesh runaway,
its burnt out plane a little hulk from a different dimension, 

a researcher of longing, no one selling Heineken
from a cooler in its unlit aisles, no one with a line to God.

Acker’s poems hang on precipices of emotion. They cartwheel from sadness to glory, then break into blossoms in a drought-struck landscape of longing. These are poems filled with daring leaps and precise, deft metaphors. There is machinery, there are imaginaries; a dictator selects the musical soundtrack. The poems cajole and praise both the world and interior life with an erotic charge and enduring hope.
