Marilyn Zelke-Windau writes of the ordinary in a highly extraordinary way in her debut collection of free verse poetry. She experiments with language, imagery, texture, and narrative in in each of the book's five sections, delivering poems that are both powerful and unexpected. Nineteen poems are illustrated with pen and ink drawing by the poet herself, making this unique collection stand out. 2009-2010 Wisconsin Poet Laureate Marilyn L. Taylor says, "Momentary Ordinary is a splendid book, primarily because Marilyn Zelke-Windau is one of those rare poets with the ability to convey images of the everyday in exceptionally high relief. Among the fine poems collected here, one describes a vast landscape as a kaleidoscope of dark tree lines, feather-edged foliage, while another zooms in on a pudgy dog with cork-short legs. With this kind of crisp precision, along with a bracing lack of sentimentality, each of the book's five sections offers a provocative take on the real world. Don't miss this one."
