Passages: 1981-2012

Welcome to the poetry of Mary Fumento.

Here begins a book of written image. Each word, each line captures a thought, a place, a time – much like a photograph can do. Memories can be formed and recaptured not only with pictures, souvenirs, and scents but also with words.

Each phrase takes readers on a mysterious and elusive journey into me, and into themselves.

And in order to be successful with my written image, my work must be able to recreate the initial trip each time the reader dares to travel down my road again. Only after each reading, we all delve a little bit further into ourselves than we dared the time before.

- Mary O. Fumento
