Tanya Contos – The Tide Clock and Other Poems. Reviewed by The Midwest Book Review

Experienced at life and at poetry, Tanya Contos brings readers her latest anthology, "The Tide Clock." Focusing on the sea that Contos has lived nearby for much of her life, she uses humanity and characters to imbue real meaning into her poetry. "The Tide Clock" is a fine and moving collection, and a must for anyone looking for nautical-oriented work. "Slide Show": After the fiftieth photo/from a trip you had long forgotten/coast of Cornwall '87/gray rocks/green sea/pink face/the screen goes blank/the fans blows hard/the wind off Land's End lashes you/and this uptown space you share/with someone new who asks too much/is way too bright/too dark/too small.
