New Book: Fulcrum

I am so happy to say my first book of poetry, Fulcrum: Selected Poems, has just been published by Nirala Press and is now available in hardcover on Amazon.


FULCRUM -Sparkling musicality, deep emotion and discerning reflection distinguish O’ Garden’s poems. Here is a fine intelligence at work-and at play-revealing a tonic pe
rspective in a range of poetic expression, including lyric, narrative and her own innovative “fulcrum” forms. Her close observation and sensual delight in language make “Fulcrum” an experience both grounding and uplifting.

Several writers I respect have shared gratifying words about this collection. Read them here.

Last year I lettered, illuminated and bound the manuscript The Poet Mechanic, by Thomas Donahue. You can view it in person for a few more weeks on 44th street between 5th and 6th Avenues at The General Society of Mechanics and Tradesmen of The City of New York, a hallowed organization 231 years old.
