Local favorite Sandra Beasley's inventiveness in full force in her latest collection, Count the Waves. Using The Traveler's Vade Mecum—an archaic text composed of phrases that were used for telegraphs and mailing letters—as the central vehicle of the book, Beasley's voice is both playful and profound. Her poems push the boundaries of narrative and her language is at times whimsical and haunting, then vivid and piercing. Much like her previous book, I Was the Jukebox, Count the Waves is a collection one can dive into and forget to come up for air.
