Terry Godbey’s poetry has appeared in Poet Lore, Rattle, Rosebud, Potomac Review, Slipstream, Pearl, Primavera and CALYX Journal. She is a copy editor at the Orlando Sentinel and lives with her husband and 11-year-old son in Maitland, Florida. She likes to play guitar, grow roses, ride her bicycle, and camp and hike, even though she attracts bears and snakes. She thinks she just might go crazy if she couldn’t write poems.
“Terry Godbey offers us freeze frames from our secret lives, frames in which we are caughthuman, vulnerable, and, if not guilty, then not entirely innocent. These powerful poems explore desire, desire that never stops, even while we may pretend otherwise, desire that the light slipping out beneath the closed door means someone is waiting for us there. There’s a refreshing frankness herewhere other poets might turn away, Godbey keeps going, digging deeper into the strange, imperfect human heart.
