|THE LIQ LONG ISLAND POETS’ CHAPBOOK LIST 2009
Kelly Powell’s Cassandra Complex chronicles the search for knowledge in a world where the Internet is “more reliable than intuition.” These poems draw on wide-ranging influences, from Cassandra to Anita Hill, to muse on the trials of life in modern society. Despite her philosophical wanderings, Powell manages the necessities of everyday life, such as carrying home a bag of groceries, and rejects the spiritual guide who practices in a cave or “never worked a day in its life.” These poems remind the reader that even the smallest gesture ripples across the universe.
