Description - Ocean Avenue - Poems by Morling

In Ocean Avenue, Malena Morling examines the givens of our daily lives and discovers them to be more mysterious than we had supposed. The poet's sense of wonder is contagious whether she views the world from her seat on a train, from the window of her apartment, or from the streets of the city. Through a subtle, mediated surrealism, Morling reins in the urban landscapes of New York, drawing the reader into her meditations on the temporal and the spatial, on language itself.
