Tourist Poems By Tak Erzinger
CAPE COD, Mass. - April 4, 2023 - PRLog -- The poetry collection Tourist encompasses a journey that unburdens the weight of past guilt and trauma. During this voyage spanning multiple cultures and stages in life, the importance of following one's inner voice and embracing one's own path is discovered. Revelations are made in the middle of the night, during a pandemic, in the heart of the forest, at the seaside and in food, snapshots of past and present. Through the wonder and surprise of nature the search for identity is explored, surrendering to what cannot be changed and confronting the mercurial temperament of relationships and how they are perceived, one poem at a time.

TAK Erzinger's collection Tourist acts as a window into a journey through the poet's experiences as well as the locations in the world she has visited in her life. Her poems such as Chichén Itzá- 1982 and In Between Days bring the reader along with her on this journey. It is hard to choose a favourite poem from this collection. As a whole, they offer a panacea to those who've suffered through the past few years of Covid responses.
-Amos Grieg, Editor-in-Chief, A New Ulster

TAK Erzinger's imagery and metaphor engages us in a world where a woman seeks to understand abandonment, involuntary childlessness, and unconditional love. Readers will enjoy all the stops on this journey that redefine what family could mean. At its heart, Tourist reminds us that what we pass on to future generations surpasses blood ties-and when we love freely and deeply, we create family. -Liz Whiteacre, author of Hit the Ground and founder of Etchings Press at the University of Indianapolis
