Orange Girl, a new chapbook by Simone Muench, was just put on the Woody P shelves last week and many of them have gone to staff homes already. (Don’t worry there are still more left). I am another woman that, "is laughing, is lost" in this book. I loved its poetic study of a specific type of girl and the ways that the world has altered her. Simone read a poem from this series back when she last read at Woodland Pattern as part of the Switchback Books event. It was intriguing on its own with lovely latticed images, but now that the orange girl poems are together in a family, I need to go back and sift through the images again, start pulling them out one by one and examining them like a dedicated archaeologist on a dig for dinosaurs. I think I will.
