Imperfect Tense by Melisa Cahnmann-Taylor

Imperfect TenseThis poetry collection is a meditation on language. The first section delves into Americans’ pursuit of Spanish as a second language. They take the literal grammar of the “imperfect” as a metaphor for the language acquisition process. The second section revolves around experiences as an English language and poetry teacher working with immigrant communities. The final section focuses on the languages of family.
