"Messengers of the Gods is a masterpiece of poetic craft and deeply felt truths, thanks to Kathryn Gahl's ability to dance with words in an alchemy of form and style. "

-Sylvia Cavanaugh, author of Icarus, Anthropology of Addiction

"Gahl invites us into the house of memory 'where we inhale pain and exhale love, ' and we hang on her every word. Perhaps we are all just experiencing 'a brief glory traveling through space and time, ' on this earth. 'Come dance with me / connect with me, ' Gahl implores, and we do."

-Cristina M.R. Norcross, Editor of Blue Heron Review, author of The Sound of a Collective Pulse

"Kathryn Gahl's Messengers of the Gods journeys through the dance of life. . . . This is an exquisite read, with a masterful use of language, celebrating movement with words."

-Annette Langlois Grunseth, author of Combat and Campus: Writing Through War

"Messengers of the Gods is the song we all need to hear right now in this unsettling world to 'teach our cells new moves, ' as Gahl writes, to become Iris and fly, to hold loves beyond the grave, and, most important, to dream."

-Jodie Montag, Lakeland University

"Kathryn Gahl's poems are filled with the sweet but hard liquor of life."

-Karla Huston, Wisconsin Poet Laureate 2017-2018

author of Grief Bone and A Theory of Lipstick
