Condominiums, Conch Shells and Consciousness by Liza Sisk
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


"Liza Sisk, in her final poem of Condominiums, Conch Shells and Consciousness, writes-Rarely do we notice that the Fibonacci series...repeats in our stream of consciousness. Every sequence of poems in this collection confirms that possibility. Sisk's subjects move in and out of the particular and the universal: first this-worldly, about the challenges of the common grass allergy, buying a condominium; then other-worldly, about everyman traveling from earth to heaven, the three weavers deciding our fate. "Our lives revisit the same themes in an ostensibly coincidental manner. But within that network of coincidence lies a pattern, an order in the chaos of our quotidian lives. Most poets, on finding such a pattern, will create an aesthetic arrangement of the recurring themes. Liza Sisk has remained true to life in that she has not given in to that old trope. There is, indeed, order in chaos, but Sisk leaves careful readers with the adventure and excitement of discovering that order on their own. A move both bright and brave!" -Cathy Smith Bowers Faculty, MFA Program Queens University of Charlotte
