"[Terris’s poems]... surprised me with their depth and range of emotion."—Rebecca Foust, Women’s Voices for Change

A chapbook of epistolary and intimate “memo” poems

From the author’s “Memo to the Reader”: “if you open this book and expect to
/ know me you will find both truth // and lie all poets lie and lay and have / lain so discover inside what’s mad // or curious yet beware ye who enter / for you may see yourself herein”
