Things That Fell From My HeadA new book of Poems to Benefit Victims of Domestic ViolenceThe fear and loneliness a victim of abuse feels can be paralyzing. In Things That Fell From My Head, Wendy Matarese has collected poems born from that darkness into a transparent journal that allows readers to peer at moments of joy, despair and triumph. Matarese's writing is a striking combination of stark reality, beautiful subtlety and surprising honesty that will delight, sadden and, most of all, inspire. Her poems, "The Birthday Party" and Oh, Dark Spirit", allow a glimpse into this natural poet's emotional verse.
