Poetry. Intimate, tender, at times funny and at others erotically charged, Porter's poems dwell on the subjects that affect us deeply: relationships complicated by circumstance; childbirth; illness; unseasonable death. She reminds us that it is in the everyday entaNglements that we find poetry. Tony Barnstone invites readers to, f]ollow her through the 'bourbon-hinged jangling dancing open door' seven floors up to visit the kitchen of the soul. There are madwomen in that attic, but the booze is good, and they really know how to cook. Lyrical and imaginative, SEVEN FLOORS UP asks us to read the signs of life, see what's outside. Cati Porter is founder and editor-in-chief of Poemeleon: A Journal of Poetry ( and associate editor (poetry) for Babel Fruit (, and is the author of a chapbook of prose poems, small fruit songs (Pudding House Publications, 2008).
