Cheryl’s Poems range from the autobiographical, with a touch of Southern gothic, to the unknown future and a little bit of everything in between (aliens, animals, coaches, crazy aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, drugs, drunks, Elvis, the famous and infamous, geniuses, grandparents, hackers, heroes, hunters, hypocrites, judges, lawyers, lovers, players, preachers, presidents, prisoners, prostitutes, refugees, robots, royals, scientists, singers, soldiers, teachers, and so on). Have you ever been infatuated, in love, and/or in lust? Might you be interested in life in the rural South during segregation? And the deaths of President Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., Robert Kennedy, or Che Guevara? Has anyone in your family ever been involved in conflict or divorce? Are you interested in adventure, family history, any history, -isms, literature, mythology, nature, peace, politics, pollution, religion, science, sports, or war? Have you wondered about the supernatural? Are you concerned with justice and rights? With the environment? With the future of the earth? Have you ever felt abused, bullied, depressed, discriminated against, sexually harassed, or insecure? (Who hasn’t?) Every emotion and something for everyone are in this collection of poems. Cheryl was a ridge runner as a girl growing up in the mountains of North Carolina but has since been around the block. She has lived in seven US states and on the island of St. Lucia. For a year, she crossed the border from El Paso, Texas, to work in a hospital in Juarez in Mexico. She called Atlanta home for fifteen years when she saw and met several famous people she tells about. She lives back in her small North Carolina hometown, which has never been like Mayberry (and her daddy wasn’t like Andy). She is a committed activist for the environment and justice and is interested in history, literature, people, and science—the past, present, and future—which are all reflected in her poetry.
