Uneven Lanes is a book of personal poetry by Caitlin M.S. Buxbaum. This is her third collection, compiled of poems written primarily in July 2017, leading up to and following the author’s wedding. The cover, however, is a photograph of the Nov. 30, 2018 Alaska earthquake (taken by the author), designed to express the unexpected beauty and force of nature that can manifest in human relationships.
If you enjoy reading free verse poetry about family, nature and/or inner conflict, this book is for you.
Praise for Uneven Lanes
I’m a sucker for the description of love and life as slightly messy, but still agreeable and romantic in spite of it all. To me, this collection of poems captures that sentiment. The poem in this collection that nails it is ‘what if instead.’ It speaks pure truth to daily married life, the difficulties, and why we cherish it anyhow. This book is worth reading through multiple times.
