With a voice both sensual and spiritual, the poetry of Earth-Marked Like You presents the body as a temporal and spatial expression of the soul. These poems suggest that our passion as human beings is to transcend our ordinary lives so we can feel the excitement of the life force and that we use our bodies in our attempts to do this. A quest for the integration of human intellect, physicality and spirituality, this collection explores love, risk and faith. While we are on Earth, we are human, souls with bodies, spiritual yet Earth-marked.
Mary Dezember has always been a writer and has worked in a variety of writing professions, but it wasn't until the age of thirty-seven that she began writing poetry and began pursuing her PhD in Comparative Literature from Indiana University. Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs and Associate Professor of English at New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology, she performs her poetry nationally at arts festivals, bookstores, conferences, coffee houses, art galleries and museums, and in other poetry venues.
