Folding Laundry on Judgment Day
Whether playing variations on fairy tales and the remembered world of childhood or poignantly confronting the decline and deaths of parents, Miller Adams combines a gift for easy narrative flows with a keen, clear-eyed intelligence that is undeceived by nostalgia and made palatable by wry humour. Hers is a bracingly distinctive voice.

WE WALKED LIGHTLY ON THE EARTH, DIDNíT LEAVE A MARK
Hereís to the secondary life,
The clouds are fat and oblivious
The sister rain insists itís time:
Raise your hand my love if you think that the system is working
