Mary is, without doubt, one of the most talented people I have encountered. Her work is 'in-yer-face' but without the pretentiousness. There is an incredible dynamism that is lacking in a lot of artistic work of today.
The freshness that she brings to poetry is breathtaking. If this woman is not published then the publishing world is run by crooks and wankers.
there are very few people that I would call cutting-edge. Most are happy to go along reading and writing the same guff; not wanting to move beyond the experienced. Mary is not one of those. her poems expound, not only attitude, but freshness. She tends towards the ' in-yer-face' school but without any pretentions or falseness.
There is a realness and honesty to Mary's works that is lacking in a lot of artists these days; who are void of direction. Mary should be published. Out there and in yer face. As by-wordish as ... well... fairy liquid.
My Soul and I.
We travelled into Eden Just to find destruction. A war of beauty.
My soul and I scoured The land of dreams And future memories, We came to a black wall.
