Charcoal drawings by Siena Sanderson
A limited edition, numbered, signed, and hand-sewn by the poet.
It was always the child: hold me.
It was always the pillow, the palm.
Between words, what language I tried to learn.
Save me one last time: the room damp,
the carpet matted, the walls stained.
This dwelling now familiar.
It was only another story of reflection:
that body on the bench, that body on the dock;
that body barely touched this body.

"The rhythms.... as varied as the rhythms of lust.... (Autumn Sequence) celebrates women's bodies and the delights — however fleeting — of sexuality/ tao artist Sierra Sanderson's abstract, sensuously expressive charcoal drawings present women's erotica that is both passionate and subtle.... The harmony of artistic and poetic line is as complementary as love." — Cathy Davidson, The Women's Review of Books
