“NANCY SIMPSON’S POEMS SPEAK WITH A VOICE
that knows where it comes from, honoring that place
and the web of relationships that exist within it. She
can make the world shimmer in a single line. She
can break your heart. She can sing. She does what
a poet has to do, wake the reader into a fresh vision
