God Has My Tears But I Can Sing
by Elizabeth Gerhardt
The author explores a variety of subjects, from lifes realities to dreamlike fantasies, using vivid descriptions, thoughtful musings, and stories, both real and imagined. Meet all kinds of people: neighbors, scheming exes, melodic choral singers, an evil psychopath, soulmates hanging around through eternity, adventure-seeking chat room seniors, and one old grouch. An animal lover, she introduces patient, abandoned, dumpster-diving dogs and one dog-stalking cat. No shortage of passionate lovers: I taste from your body/the mead of a thousand honeyed lips. . . A recurring theme of optimism, as the title implies, and a smorgasbord of entertaining verses from how to eat grits to the surrealistic shimmer on a Kansas road.
