 Praise for Play Me a Revolution

Play Me a Revolution is a collection that gives an entirely new meaning to the term “poetic justice.” This book examines the essential truths of living in our world today. Lindsey Royce is not afraid to take a deeper look at issues of war, race, human suffering, immigration, and gun violence. The poet examines these difficult issues with grace and eloquence. This collection takes the reader to the sensual sea, a bus ride, the Tao of wheat and the strawberry moon solstice. As Wendell Berry states, “there are no unsacred places, there are only sacred places and desecrated places.” This poet takes the reader to the sacred places, and beyond. Even while delving into the desecrated places, the poems here let us know there is “heartache in one hand, in the other, hope.” One will return to these pages as a spiritual salve. We will kneel to what makes us human and “the luck of each cosmic note that holds us.”
