I.V. Poems by Lucy J. Madison is a collection of poetry centered on time, place, and relationships.
"If poetry should be tied to song in either rhythm or movement, these qualify as segments from a symphony with nostalgic notes we've heard before-or think we have - but that also sweep into refrains we could not have expected." - Jenny Kalahar
"I admit, I did not just read these poems; I devoured them, a starving woman at the table of plenty. I haven't done that since the last time I read Erica Jong. I will read these poems again, and take my time, and chew each morsel carefully to extract all the flavor, all the meat, all the wonderful goodness." - Lenore G.
"I first encountered Lucy J. Madison’s poetry when TPJ published her poem, “The Farmhouse.” Her deft use of language and knack for choosing just the right word becomes quickly evident. These are intimate and fascinating poems that probe the mystery of relationship, often while exploring those spaces where one thing meets the edge of another: black night yielding to dawn, or ocean surf pounding against a sandy beach. Her facility for metaphor and personification brings words alive in new and often surprising ways." - Barry Harris, Editor Tipton Poetry Journal
