What better way to condense life down to its bright moments of wonder and dark questions in the night. Polly's lyrical poems, cast in her family's Midwest narrative, explore faith, loss, and the American Heartland's post-farm generations. She takes us from the empty lots in old Kansas City to a Pennsylvania Farm Family in the 20s, and don't forget granny "that shot the wolf." Three generations of stories retold in free verse. With quilted stories of earth and light, Polly Alice shares the story of life in the middle of the map and the search for Home. "Tea with Alice" is a companion to "Kinlight" her first collection of autobiographical poems.
