Red Dashboard LLC Publications presents a wonderful book of poetry by Diane Sahms-Guarnieri– In a city that looks back, reflective as the moon, Diane Sahms-Guarnieri hangs life on the line from clothespin to clothespin to clothespin, billowing in the night breeze, a breeze that chills but does not cool. The light Night Sweat sheds on the city is not the glare of sun but the haunting vision of moonlight that touches at once the subliminal and the sublime. In a striking array of poetic images, reflecting together Ash Can Art and Georgia O’Keefe, haunting and dazzling at once, as moonlight illuminations provide tantalizing glimpses in a landscape revealed only to the exquisite extent that moonlight allows. —Mike Cohen Host of Poetry Aloud and Alive Contributing Editor, Schuylkill Valley Journal www.reddashboard.com
