Inspired by Paradoxes
by Betty Jeanne Calkin

“Tunneling obnoxiously / Conniving and contriving / Careening sometimes, near out of control…”

And so begins Betty Jean Calkin's exploration of the universe's seemingly endless paradoxes. From examining relationships in their infancy to those on the verge of collapse, Calkin studies the nuances of our connection with the world and the people around us, while often highlighting the absurd and self-contradictory.

Her collection of poems details a transformation and evolution that so many have experienced, yet so few are able to articulate. Calkin's experiences are thoughtfully expressed using candid, often raw, language that will leave readers questioning common beliefs and re-thinking the paradoxes around us.
