triskelion, tiger moth, tangram, thyme - Marcia Arrieta (Otoliths)

triskelion, tiger moth, tangram, thyme is Marcia Arrieta's first book of poetry. Within its pages language and the invisible coincide, voyaging precarious, discovering.

"Arrieta’s poems are overlapping spheres, vanishing points, circles that reflect her fascination with modern cosmology, aesthetics, and the spirituality of language." — Andrea Moorhead

"Her poems are compelling, marked by deft and abrupt turnings, a total mastery of paratactic construction, and a dazzling sense of the landscape of the heart played against that insistent inner voice. Here, at last, they are gathered together, a gift well worth having, a quiet visionary voice which surprises and invites the reader to be attentive." — David Cope

As well as a poet, Marcia Arrieta is a mother, educator, and artist. Her chapbook experimental: was published by potes & poets press and another chapbook the curve against the linear was published by toadlily press in An Uncommon Accord. She edits and publishes Indefinite Space, a poetry journal. (featured in Daily s-Press: Indefinite Space 2010)
