Poetry, chapbook, 29 pages, from Bottlecap Press.
"Probing the thin veil of supposed reality, this collection of poems covers the earth, turns its eye on the Columbia Gorge, then swiftly travels to Kompong Cham. “Birthday Parties are Pluperfect” exclaims one of her titles, then the poem asks, “Why did the balloon float over the fence.” Morel explores the gap between words and meaning, the irony of attaching to any prevailing narrative. Everything in this collection escapes its boundaries, establishes a narrative then moves to the next bright revelation."
-Dion O’Reilly, author of Ghost Dogs
