Poetry Matters presents Jean Barett Holloway – September 19, 2013

Jean Barrett Holloway has produced an insightful look into her years of  involvement with a hard-core weight lifting team.  These poems immerse us in the dark energy of the ”dungeon,” as lifters strive to perfect the transitory art of defying gravity.

For those in the sport, or outside the world of sport, it provides us a glimpse as to what really happens as part of hard training and stressful events which are just a heartbeat away from magic moments when “gravity blinks.”  Jean Holloway has given us honest and original poetry.
