  1. Jacqueline,

    Great to meet you in front of the NYC library yesterday. I have been thrilled about discovering your work today. I just began reading your poems in Tristise and they are absolutely magnificent! They are filled with profundity and offer insightful perspectives while they capriole through fluent music. I will definitely have to look for you at the Brooklyn Art House Co-op Sketchbook Project.

    All the best,
