Here are deft, appealing poems with a swath of mischief, a dash of humor and ample humanity, perfect for those who still need to be convinced that 1) poetry does not have to be boring; 2) poetry does not have to be incomprehensible; 3) poetry does not have to resemble raw, unskilled spillage of emotions and happenstance. And, further, here are poems for librarians, any librarians, and for those who've ever even met, even seen a librarian. Meet-Noir Librarian.
-Suzanne Lummis author of Open Twenty-Four Hours

Eliciting the eros of subtle presence, Melissa Fischer wrests poetry from the caustic cauldron of Obuasi, a mining boomtown in the Ashanti Region of Ghana. West Africa Gold dams the Gyimi River, stagnating the water source of Gyimiso Kakraba, a village of subsistence farmers who refuse to accept a modern world that has forsaken the art of human connection. Compelled by the devastation of water-borne diseases, Gyimiso Kakraba enlists Louisa Lehmann, a civil engineer and Peace Corps volunteer, to intercede on their behalf. Lehmann exudes pride in her profession, honors her fluid gender, and yields to the greatest lesson of all taught by the people of Gyimiso Kakraba deep in Ghana's equatorial forest.
