The Dirty Side of the Storm

Poems

Martha Serpas (Author)

Overview | Inside the Book
 

"At once a love song and a dirge to a landscape being swallowed by the waters that define it."—St. Petersburg Times

An evocative meditation on destruction and creation, the sacred and ephemeral, along Louisiana's coast. In poems that bear witness to the eroding bayou country and its Cajun culture, Martha Serpas venerates a vanishing landscape defined by water—sensuous, fecund, and destructive. As marsh turns into gulf, identity and consciousness are transformed as well. Serpas's verses invest paradox with her own defiantly spiritual meaning.
