These poems are about a family’s loss: the loss of a mother’s mental capabilities due to dementia, the loss of her words, and the loss of her family’s ability to hold on to her identity. The chapbook is divided into three parts, each told from one family member’s perspective, as in “Part 1: The Daughter’s Poem.” As the mother struggles for expression, she asserts her presence throughout each poem, even when her voice is absent.

Minding the Spectrum’s Business is a work set on a path that is personal, as well as universal, in appeal. In this collection, the poet, recording the perks and pitfalls of her life, embarks upon an existential journey during which a pattern of movement comes to light: propulsion and drag. The poet formally establishes the balance between the two. The leitmotifs in the poems are the elements of nature, tidal relationships, and certain “pulls” akin to Beckettian diversions, all of which play out within the context of solitude. Each dwelling place of the mind, each new station is explored from the vantage point of some unique landscape, be it an arc in the spectrum, or a spare room.

Lisa Raskin is a woman with big aspirations. Sure, there are worse things than being the second in command to Maxima City’s one and only female supervillain and Lisa knows she has a pretty sweet gig. But no one ever dreams of being second banana, so when she’s given the opportunity to join the Coalition of Evil, Maxima City’s who’s-who of A-lister Malevolents, Lisa jumps at the chance. Especially since this means she can finally have her revenge against Magnificent Man, the hero responsible for the tragedy that turned her to the dark side. But becoming a household name isn’t all evil plans and underground lairs. There are hoops to jump through, brand consultation meetings, damages to pay for, and diva costume designers to deal with. Worst of all, Magnificent Man has made himself scarcer than pockets on women’s clothing. Add in an antagonistic ex, a clueless rival, and a taxing day job, and it’s no wonder this ice talent is about to lose her cool.
These are quiet poems, plainspoken. They sit in the back of class, in the last pew at church, and have sly, considered things to say. Bittersweet, self-aware, surreal, and funny, they celebrate the commonplace, tracing the arc of an afternoon, a season, a lifetime, distilling wisdom and its costs along the way. The Happiest Day of My Life is a journey toward perspective. Both memoir and personal Shangri-La, it invites you to spend a few moments of your own day beside its open window.
