Water is a book-length poem about the Queen of Sheba's trip to meet Solomon. Unlike the biblical account, Water presents the story from the Queen's perspective. The book is the outcome of a collaboration among the poet, Alice Ryerson Hayes, book designer Greer Allen, and artist Jeffrey Abt. Five of the fifteen drawings in the book--one per poem section--are reproduced here.
