Breach – my chapbook of original poetry (Finishing Line Press, 2008)

In this astonishingly vital collection Anne Haines moves back and forth between land and sea, exploring every possible kind of breach and blessing. Her embrace encompasses accidents, birds, bodies, “everything that whispers,” “every bone and every breath,” and “every form of longing.” In poems displaying a range of poetic gifts, Haines stimulates the brain and plunges deep into the heart. (Diane Lockward, author of What Feeds Us & others)

Breach moved me; made me catch my breath. Every poem and every line is essential. (Collin Kelley, author of Conquering Venus, After the Poison, & others)
