Between the Bones

(Canopic Publishing, 2005; Softcover, 5.5 x 8.5, 96 pages)

Winner of the 2006 Royal Palm Literary Award for published poetry!


Between the Bones is a structured and unified gathering of poems, poems that speak of fresh wounds and ancient healing, of emptiness and fulfillment. From the opening lines of “Getting the Angels to Talk” to the concluding words of the wonderfully apt “How to Say Good-bye Indestructibly,” the reader is embraced by a voice simultaneously innocent and experienced moving along a path of sensual awakenings.

Mary Sue Koeppel’s poetry is compassionate, female, and distinctive. If you don’t know her work, here is a great place to start. If you do, you won’t be disappointed. From gentle build to intensity, from intensity to gentle fall, this is a lovely book.” —Lola Haskins
