We Walk Together: Poems

Donna Marie Merritt s fifth book of poetry began with an encounter with a homeless man and ended with new poems which have been described as drops of conscience.

In We Walk Together, Merritt blurs the boundaries between self and other. Merritt s work radiates empathy and compassion. Her poems feature troubled (and troublesome) students, homeless people, mothers and wives, individuals of all kinds in moments of panic or confusion. Deeply human and humane, these poems provide a glimmer of hope in a world buffeted with disheartening news.

Donna Marie shines her poetic light on social ills, white privilege, and the disadvantaged, but her accessible and direct language uncovers the heart and dreams of her subjects, offering up the possibility of a better world.
