First prize in the Moonstone Arts Center International Poetry Contest

"Lisa Grunberger’s I Am Dirty gives us a perceptive eye in evocative poems in which an acute consciousness translates into perfect metaphors and surprising images. “On the night I betrayed you / my writer’s block ended” gives us a taste of what’s to come. Or, “On the night I betrayed you / the wind sounded like an ambulance / come to extinguish me.” These poems could only have been written by a woman, a woman deeply conscious of her condition even as her words soar beyond it. These are poems to be read and reread. I believe the years to come will bring us much more of worth from the author of I Am Dirty."
