Ms. Orgera donated copies of her latest work, “How Like Foreign Objects,” which will inspire and captivate poetry lovers with her adroit movement through metaphor.
Simone Muench said, “Like foreign objects, Orgeraʼs poems cannot be easily pinned down: they retort, morph, disarm and shimmy, arcing through us like searchlights, as they illumine both fissures in language and in bodies. From doppelgangers to occult investigators, animalia to marginalia, telegrams to psychic readings, her poems pulse with displacement and transfigurement.”
Charles Harbin and Alexis Orgera were new friends, and both graduates of New College of Florida. Charles loved language, and would appreciate the zeal and beauty of Alexisʼ poetry.
We’re pleased to announce each 2012 recipient of the Charles J. Harbin, III Memorial Scholarship award will receive a copy of How Like Foreign Objects, signed by the author.
