The poems of Terri Witek's second book include memorable suites on painting and painters and the notorious Sitwell family. Witek is an expert at peeling back layer after layer of experience to catch a glimpse of the submerged mysteries. "A little blonde is the hardest thing in the world to dress
though pastels bring up her skin like certain glazes
and she's at her best in hats awash in cherries,
flowers, and the silly mornings of the past . . ."

Terry Witek directs the Sullivan Creative Writing Program at Stetson University in Florida. Her first book, "Fools and Crows," appeared in 2003. A chapbook, "Courting Couples," won the 2000 Center for Book Arts Letterpress Contest. She is the author of "Robert Lowell and Life Studies: Revising the Self."
