My first poetry collection titled WHAT SUITS A NUDIST is about to be published!
Here is a description from the Clare Songbirds Publishing House:
“To read Lois Bassen’s poetry is to be led by a priestess into a place that is part laboratory, part seraglio, part garden, part observatory and part weapons forge. This learned lady with the nicely turned ankle will show you her intricate and ingenious machines, that contain a bronze and amethyst bird that will sing on the hour. Mistress of metamorphosis, blue-stocking, dangerous mother and wry comedian, she’ll carry you off if you’re not careful.”
~Frederick Turner, Founders Professor, School of Arts & Humanities, UT Dallas
