In the works of Wendy Carlisle one will find much mechanical imagery: humans as pistons and roller coasters, as car keys, as the victims of automobile wrecks. Her poems reflect on the passions and powers of humans, while always spotlighting our limitations, frequently focusing on the ends that we eventually meet.
Wendy Taylor Carlisle lives in East Texas with her husband, three cats and a very large Rottweiler. She has published both in print and on-line at sites like Riding the Meridian, Poetry Magazine.com, Conspire, The Astrophysist's Tango Partner Speaks, A Writer's Choice Literary Journal, 2River, Tinturn Abbey, Sarasvatzine, The Salt River Review, Mystic River Review, Gravity, Zuzu's Petals, and The Texas Observer. Her book, Reading Berryman to the Dog, is availible at the Unlikely Stories bookstore. You can e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org, or read the interview she gave for Unlikely Stories.
