Stefanescu, Alina, 2016, Objects in Vases: Anchor and Plume, 976-0-9975449-0-9, $10, 42 p.

Mainstream poets often write obscurely, or about boring shit. Not Stefanescu. Her poems strike unerringly to the heart of humanity. She sees what is important, and tells us what one woman knows about it: children, a bizarre alien culture, love, how others see us, and so on. Everyday life, yes, but that's all there is, isn't it? Yes, all there is is exactly what you'll find in this book, or one person's piece of it. In words that say what they mean. You need Objects in Vases.
