The Dirty Side of the Storm
Other Editions of This Title:
An evocative meditation on destruction and creation, the sacred and ephemeral, along Louisiana's coast.
In poems that bear witness to the eroding bayou country and its Cajun culture, Martha Serpas venerates a vanishing landscape defined by watersensuous, fecund, and destructive. As marsh turns into gulf, identity and consciousness are transformed as well. Serpas's verses invest paradox with her own defiantly spiritual meaning.
