Acknowledging how she was led “through a narrow door” to marriage and motherhood, she nevertheless celebrates her “choices.” Yet she “walks against contemporary traffic” and wonders what it would be like to be“those other women.” From “the shelter of home / commuting to the kitchen and back,” she has been an astute observer of human behavior. With her keen sense of language and an eye for rich imagery, she creates poems that are honest and moving.” —Kathleen Bryce Niles, The Comstock Review“Written with candor, these poems transform ordinary experiences into extraordinary glimpses into a woman’s personal life. Bushman-Carlton recalls such things as grade school immunizations, a fire drill during gym class showers, a teacher demonstrating how to put on a brassiere. She writes lovinglyof her son dancing in his room, her daughter learning about death at medical school, her concerns for a grandson. With delicacy, humor, and discretion, she tells what women know and what men ought to know about a woman’s side of things.” —Susan Elizabeth Howe, contributing editor, Tar River PoetryMarilyn Bushman-Carlton has been a Utah Arts Council Artist-in-Residence, UAC Artist Grant recipient, and prize winner in the UAC Original Writing Competition. She is the author of on keeping things small and Cheat Grass and a contributor to Discoveries: Two Centuries of Poems by Mormon Women and ToRejoice as Women: Talks from the 1994 Women’s Conference. Her work has been featured in Earth’s Daughters, Ellipsis, Exponent II, and Iris. She was named the 1999 Utah Poet of the Year by the Utah Poetry Society....

    I am not really a reader of poetry, but this was beautiful and touching. I should note that my husbands aunt it the author, so that lends a more personal feeling for her poems since I am familiar with her and her family.
