Margie Shaheed: Poetry Contest 2014 Winner

Playground: poems by Margie Shaheed

In this collection, the neighborhood bar is an adult playground. The metaphor is extended by a motif which includes children’s rhymes and references to toys and games. The language is gritty in spots, and sometimes profane, but always life-affirming.
