The Virgin Mary long ago transcended her religious origins to become an instantly recognizable icon. From pop art to pop music, Mary’s status as the Mother of God continues to inspire the faithful and the secular. A statue of Mary weeping blood or appearing in a piece of toast still has the power to make front page news and bring the devoted running with candles and eBay bids. In Mother Mary Comes To Me, poets explore the intersection of the sacred and the larger than life persona that Mary has become throughout the ages and how she still holds sway in 21st century as a figure to be praised, feared and mined for pathos and humor.
