"With this profound collection, Marguerite Guzmán Bouvard offers us a rare exposition of the mind, heart, and soul. Bouvard's poems are tender and spiritual, personal and prophetic; they are packed with powerful narratives and lyric meditations that are the light and the dark of the World's Empire. Her heart and moral intelligence express to us how the earth unfold. Her words will break your heart and heal your soul." Preston H Hood, author of the Hallelujah of Listening, Maine Literary Award Winnner for Poetry
