INNOCENCE Mar 3, 2017 by Patricia Carragon

https://www.amazon.com/Innocence-Patricia-Carragon/dp/1635341523/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1512098191&sr=8-2&keywords=patricia+carragon

Distinguished by subtle story-telling and a deft use of words and metaphor, the poems in Patricia Carragon’s new collection, Innocence, speak to the heart and soul. Vivid backdrops include a Parisian café, the circus, a windswept city day, Coney Island, and a bar full of bird-like characters. Color and nature star in many of the poignant poems that draw on elusive love and the setback of time. The poems’ heroine rarely frets, but accepts conflict and missed connections with grace. Readers will delight in Patricia Carragon’s poems brimming with irony, imagination, and ordinary life gone amok. —Amy Barone, author and poet of Kamikaze Dance (Finishing Line Press)

With a palette full of confessional colors, and the urgency of Lady Macbeth wailing ‘Out, damned spot,’ Patricia Carragon speaks truth to childhood in a voice that is at once shocking and resonant. While the title of her book is Innocence, these lines are anything but benign. There is, however, a vital remnant of a happy fairytale that survives in Carragon’s poems: the M-A-G-I-C she sprinkles into each and every one of them, reminding us to hold fast to those treasures that give us permission to live happily ever after. —Cindy Hochman, Editor-in-chief, First Literary Review-East

Patricia Carragon writes with acute sensibility, grace, and pith. She juggles scenes from her life and makes visible what the ‘wind has erased’. Made to feel unworthy and outcast as a child, her self-expression was admonished, and she was forced to keep within the lines. This is a beautiful book of poems about the power of imagination and a resilient spirit that has risen like a phoenix from the ashes of innocence to gift us all with her creative magic.

––Karen Neuberg, Author, "Myself Taking Stage" (Finishing Line Press) and "Detailed Still" (Poets Wear Prada)

"It is a testament to her vivacious spirit that Patricia Carragon would think to personify cupcakes as a device to chronicle quotidian activities and as a mode to assuage the anxieties of her daily jaunts. Tasty diary entries mingle humor and contemplative musings in a way that not only tantalizes the tongue but stimulates all of the sensory receptors, as her imagery erupts from the page to entice one’s very soul." — Alison Ross, publisher and editor of "Clockwise Cat"

Ms. Carragon has whipped up a batter of metaphor, mysticism. and whimsy, sprinkled with the right words, layered with meaning, baked to perfection and topped with a sweet frosting of fable. — Peter V. Dugan, Nassau County Poet Laureate 2016- 2018

The Cupcake Chronicles is an imaginative fable that explores what would happen if your afternoon treat were to suddenly come to life. — Francine Witte, author of Not All Fires Burn The Same

The fine playfulness of this book is worth three times the cover cost. Own it and get such sweetness, calorie free. — Susan H. Maurer, author of Josephine Butler: A Collection of Poetry

What begins as a normal work day changes for Carragon when she sees "cupcakes — the size of hobbits — parading the halls" of her office. From that point on, humanoid confections take over her life — and — ours in this allegorical tale depicting the underlining madness of our ordinary lives. — Linda Lerner, author of Yes, the Ducks Were Real"

Carragon writes with humor, deft language, and an energy that sweeps us into buttercream icing. . . Pay close attention to the wisdom her cupcakes impart: "We are here to look delicious and to please the sweet tooth of the human race" ; "Humans are better off as desserts." — Maria Lisella, Queens Poet Laureate 2015 - 2018

Autumn's Chill

Autumn's chill paints leaves in rich reds and gold - casts them six feet above chilled soil. Sunflowers become aged people. Green stalks turn gray, droop in defeat. Yellow petals shrivel, drop like ochre tears.

My sweater, worn over a Summer top, feels no compassion. An intricate weave of utilitarian fiber has me shiver behind buttonholes.

But like flowers and leaves, I watch days fall apart. Autumn rubs my shoulders - a dubious sensation born from wind, devoid of love, will die in Winter's hands. Snow will come to bury the past - the trees will be at peace.

(Published in MOBIUS, The Poetry Magazine)

Gray-White

Gray-white—the sky looks old, devoid of sunlit blue. Like the overcast that covers Brooklyn, the colors in my neighborhood diminish. Melting snow, devoid of youthful white, hugs the cars and curbs. The featherlike trees, devoid of chlorophyll expression, stand like wrinkled silhouettes, frozen in timeless sleep. Sadness is everywhere— gray-white paints the living room

to match my mood.

Give the Gift of Poetry for the Holidays

Innocence, a new collection of twenty-five poems by Patricia Carragon. Innocence is about how reality burns the “cookie-cutter” expectations of childhood and the “success stories” of adulthood. In several poems, reality is the extension of unescapable nightmares—the ones that hit you in the gut. But reality is also the source for inspiration, humor, hope, dignity, and joy. Ms. Carragon’s words understand the complexities of struggle—words that many of her readers could relate to. Patricia Carragon has the resilience to overcome obstacles—a fighter who bounces back before the ten count. Amy Barone, author of "Kamikaze Dance"(Finishing Line Press), says, “The poems’ heroine rarely frets, but accepts conflict and missed connections with grace. Readers will delight in Patricia Carragon’s poems brimming with irony, imagination, and ordinary life gone amok.” Cindy Hochman, Editor-in-chief of First Literary Review-East, sums it up: “There is, however, a vital remnant of a happy fairytale that survives in Carragon’s poems: the M-A-G-I-C she sprinkles into each and every one of them, reminding us to hold fast to those treasures that give us permission to live happily ever after.” And lastly, Karen Neuberg, author of "Myself Taking Stage" (Finishing Line Press) and "Detailed Still" (Poets Wear Prada), says, “This is a beautiful book of poems about the power of imagination and a resilient spirit that has risen like a phoenix from the ashes of innocence to gift us all with her creative magic.” Brooklyn writer Patricia Carragon loves cupcakes, chocolate, cats, and haiku. As a child, she’d write and illustrate a make-believe newspaper. However, she wasn’t encouraged to write until the early '90s when she wrote witty pitches for her Brunch ’n Fun social activities at St. Bartholomew’s Church. One friend encouraged her to explore her literary muse. Another friend said that her eulogy for Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis had poetic resonance. Ms. Carragon is an avid writer of short stories, prose, and poetry. Her first book of poems is Journey to the Center of My Mind (Rogue Scholars Press, 2005), followed by Urban Haiku and More (Fierce Grace Press, 2010). The Cupcake Chronicles is forthcoming from Poets Wear Prada. Her publication credits include Allbook Books, The Avocet, BigCityLit, Bear Creek Haiku, Boog City, CLWN WR, Clockwise Cat, Danse Macabre, Drunk Monkeys, Home Planet News, Inertia, Lips, Levure littéraire, Long Island Quarterly, Mad Hatters’ Review, Maintenant, The Mom Egg, Panoply, poeticdiversity, Tribe Magazine, The Toronto Quarterly, Word Salad, Yellow Chair Review, and others. She is a member of brevitas, a group fiercely dedicated to short poems, and is a member of Pen Women's Literary Workshop and Tamarind. She is one of the Executive Editors for Home Planet News Online. Ms. Carragon hosts the Brooklyn-based Brownstone Poets and is the editor-in-chief of its annual anthology. Since August 2005, Brownstone Poets still continues to be a safe haven for the written and spoken word. It is an open mic reading held usually on first Saturdays with two or three guest readers. INNOCENCE can be ordered online at www.finishinglinepress.com or www.amazon.com $14.99 retail, 44 pages, Finishing Line Press (March 3, 2017) ISBN-10: 1635341523, ISBN-13: 978-163534152, First Edition
