Of The Bluest Kali, Khaled Mattawa writes, "I admire Scherezade Siobhan's intensity in this marvelous book of poems.
Her love of language, acute attention to the world and her feminist intuition propel these poems toward ecstasy. And like
a forest fire that burns away dead wood and generous showers that waken dormant seeds these poems are indeed
worthy of Kali, gorgeous and deeply blue."
