Minding the Spectrum's Business is a work set on a path that is personal, as well as universal, in appeal. In this collection, the poet, recording the perks and pitfalls of her life, embarks upon an existential journey during which a pattern of movement comes to light: propulsion and drag. The poet formally establishes the balance between the two. The leitmotifs in the poems are the elements of nature, tidal relationships, and certain "pulls" akin to Beckettian diversions, all of which play out within the context of solitude. Each dwelling place of the mind, each new station is explored from the vantage point of some unique landscape, be it an arc in the spectrum, or a spare room.

Instead I found a few poems that I had left out for one reason or another. Which leads to this book and it's title. This is a group of poems that I wrote over several years about several different subjects. Mostly about relationships and love. I hope you enjoy these poems.
