Sarah Menefee's new book, Holy Eel, is a collection of brief, tight poems that reflect the possessions of the dispossessed. Menefee describes her interactions with the down and out eking out an existence in the gritty sections of the city. The cosmos breathes through wild eyes in the wilderness of the urban landscape. Menefee is drawn to and continually finds the essential humanity of people living rough. Subtle, strong, with some bite, this book is essentially a plea for mercy.
