"Levi Strauss Shuffle

for the day
hit the local brasserie
grab a pint or two
sing mean woman blues"

"I don't understand, I can't understand , I'll never understand and I won't
understand". Charlotte Mairís, often romantic and somewhat modernized
neo-classical style ......
From her poem "The Unveiling" she looks at the age old question "Dare dream on - - face the
dawn / Challenge swells of angry sea? Should I / Solve the mystery ". She moves from that
prototypic question to her poem entitled "FITTING IN" where she prompts us to look at more
issues of self doubt with these words. "I wear them loose / and you say tight is right, / teal
is the shade / hell ~~ Iíll never get it right!"
As you can see, Mairís poetry plucks at the same romantic harp strings that have pulled at
us all. From her poem "Bite the Bullet" you will wonder if she over heard you scream the
words that opened this review. "I don't understand, I can't understand , I'll never understand
and I won't understand".
Thank you Charlotte Mair, for articulating what we have all felt at different times in our lives.
I applaud her publisher Kedco Studios for taking a risk on an unknown Canadian poet, that is
managing to write and get published, while the rest of us sit on our duffs and curse the
system that somehow manages to keep us out. By Publisher-Editor *Richard Grove at Hidden
