As the 2010 Texas Poet Laureate, Karla K. Morton believes that poetry is everyone's art, and has carved her place in Texas Letters with this stunning collection. With well-loved titles such as "For Love and Michelangelo," "The Closer," "Why God Needs a Shotgun," "Alamo Coastline," "Woman in the Pipe Shop," and "When Texas No Longer Fits in the Glove Box," Morton's poetry will take you on a journey; her flowing style sparks memories and stirs emotions. Here's a short poem, inspired by a talk with her son, words of advice when he first fell in love: Don't Be Nervous when you see her. Don't worry about what you will say, or how you will say it. Just look at her, and wonder how your hand will fit in the small of her back; how many pins it takes to hold up her hair. . . It's no wonder Morton has been called "one of the more adventurous voices in American poetry . . ."
