Poet Bernadette Cremin treated her audience to an intimate preview of her upcoming collection, ‘Loose Ends’, from Pighog Press. Speculating that nothing ever truly ends, she pursued this theme through a variety of poems on love, loss, memories, and what is left when people move on. A mixture of personal experience, and flights of fancy, all were powerful and rather poignant. Some were sad and very honest, others more speculative, and still others were full of Bernadette’s signature dry, self-conscious wit. With vivid imagery and some raw and evocative language, these poems look to be a collection worth waiting for!
