Even Now pares Rosemerry Wahtola Trommer's expansive work down to three lines in this collection of poems, each paired with a spare drawing by artist Jill Sabella. The image-poem interaction floats on the page, evoking old ideas, bonfires burning out of control, feelings of long ago, touch hope, and the possibility of Spring.
Excerpt from Even Now:
my heart an apple blossom
afraid it doesn't know
how to become an apple
