Going Wrong is a chapbook collection of brief, free-verse poetry by poet laureate and teacher Marilyn L. Taylor, touching upon those moments and aspects of life where one's decision is of paramount importance--the choice for woe or weal could potentially have lifelong or greater repercussions. Other verses skillfully capture everything from love between eighty-year-olds to the symphonic sound of nighttime crickets chirping. An evocative and at times surreal collection, enthusiastically recommended for poetry lovers everywhere. "To a Young Diver" (For R.R.T): So long, silversides. / The lips of the sea / close over you. // I watch you shimmer / and vanish into / the inverted garden // where minnows flock / like sparrows / and tiny pods of air // sequin the powdered / shoulders of / the reef. // Deeper: obsidian walls / flicker with mystery- / fish are flame, coral sways // to the throb of / the young planet / in its skin.
