In The Poetry Alarm Clock, you will meet a drunk with smeared lipstick who shows up only at midnight; a lady enshrined forever on a restaurant wall; a little boy with Shaken Child Syndrome who just wants a home; a backyard with magical properties; a colonel in the Army who wears orange socks; and a factory worker in a drug plant who runs out of pills for herself.

Images like these you won't be able to get out of your mind, and they are on every page of this volume. Poems set like jewels in a jester's crown of the ironic, the ridiculous and the tragic, The Poetry Alarm Clock brings you people you feel you already know as well as new ones you want to know more about.

Coming from the mind of a woman who worked in television, newspapers, magazines and public relations, and then gave it all up to teach Latin in the public schools, this book of poetry will appeal to you, even if you hated poetry in high school.
