Description - Sleeping with the Moon by Colleen J. McElroy

Colleen J. McElroy's poetry shoots for the moon, and takes it in, too, in one way after another. The collection\u2019s award-winning poems animate women\u2019s experiences of sex, shopping, and dancing, while offering telling insight into the struggles and silver lining of lust, love, illness, and aging. Rich with vivid imagery and candid storytelling, Sleeping with the Moon takes readers on moonlit adventures under the night sky, through the barroom\u2019s smoky haze, and under the covers. ...Beware: such delicate sights have driven more than one woman to despair instead she watched him breathe-- relishing for a moment that secret space where night grows soft and the moon\u2019s detumescence forgives-- and where if this jeweled light holds they might strip themselves of years if only for one night --from \u201cIn Praise of Older Women\u201d
