Dark Enough
by Jeanne Liotta and
Lisa Gill (2011)

Born in Minot, North Dakota in 1970, Lisa Gill now makes her home in Moriarty, New Mexico with her two dogs. Her first book, Red as a Lotus: Letters to a Dead Trappist consists of 100 poems dedicated to Thomas Merton. Her second book, Mortar & Pestle is a response to being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Recently, she premiered Caput Nili, a one-woman show addressing violence and its ramifications. Frequently collaborating with artists and musicians, publishing in journals like the Blue Collar Review, recording on the Zerx label, and editing the Donkey Journal, Lisa also developed The Poet’s Diner, a form where poetry is ordered off a menu and served table-side. She currently coordinates Line Break (a poetry segment on KUNM 89.9FM) and has just returned to the University of New Mexico to earn her MFA in poetry.
