"Addonizio doesn't do pretty; beneath her considerable wit is a wickedly sharp edge."âLibrary Journal, starred reviewWith both passion and precision, Lucifer at the Starlite explores lifeâs dual nature: good and evil, light and dark, suffering and moments of unexpected joy. Whether looking outward to events on the world stageâthe war in Iraq, the 2004 Asian tsunamiâor inward at struggles with the self, these poems aim at the heart and against the feeling that Lucifer may have already won the day.
from âLucifer at the Starliteâ
Â Â Â Â Â Hereâs my bright idea for life on earth:
Â Â Â Â Â better management. The CEO
Â Â Â Â Â has lost touch with the details. Iâm worth
Â Â Â Â Â as much, but I care; I come down here, I show
Â Â Â Â Â my face, Iâm a real regular. A toast:
Â Â Â Â Â To our boys and girls in the war, grinding
Â Â Â Â Â through sand, to everybody here, our host
Â Â Â Â Â whoâs mostly mist, like methane rising
