poetry/prose a mixed race woman's journey through impermanence
Temp Words is a journey through impermanence from my perspective as a mixed race woman of color. This is my edge, this is how I navigate through life: one moment at a time.
"Local author Alison Hart joins Books Inc. in Alameda for a Launch Party in celebration of her stunning collection of poetry, Temp Words. A meditation on impermanence told from Alison's perspective as an American of mixed-race,Temp Words reflects themes such as death, outrage, temptation, identity, and transcendence."
“Alison Hart’s words are like doorways and curtains / leading us inspiring us reminding us of the gods and goddesses we remember being in this life / and in future poetry love making adventures in the heart...”
“All the different aspects of you are revealed in your work, and each facet is brilliant and glowing in its own way. I was moved, touched, thrilled, righteously outraged, inspired and filled with sorrow in turn! To put it simply, I love your writing!”
