Voodoo TromboneMoreReviewVoodoo Trombone, Sharon Alexanders chapbook collection of poetry, is a breathtaking debut. These fiercely passionate and precisely crafted poems reveal a consistently powerful, visceral, and highly original poetic imagination. Voodoo Trombone is not recommended for the faint of heart.~David St. JohnSharon Alexanders cascading scales of mind make Voodoo Trombone a tremendous debut collection of wild, clear poems examining love, sex, grief, and time through a startling command of imagery and memorable lines such as I slept in a galaxy of winters, and Before I became young again, I loaded my pockets with stones. The marks made of her speakers anguish and joy create a blueprint we can follow to the kinds of understanding they attain, the paradoxes, such as In the cell of night you long/for sleep in the safety of/ the executioners arms.~Ed Skoog
