Shapiro's second collection of poems is a rare volume that is both celebratory and somberly thought-provoking. It takes a poet, painter or musician to point out the minutiae of details in our human experience, those impressions that most strongly influence us, even in our unawareness of them. Shapiro's poems, in an esoteric but accessible fashion, are signals, symbols, hints at who we really are in this life.Life by Alice Shapiro would have enthralled Socrates since her book of poetry indeed examines both the everyday pulse, and the eternal everyman-flexing of the mind-muscle for penultimate answers. Life as a body poetica features a sui-generis writing style and tone that both comfortably plumb the depths of introspection and calmly skim the mirrored shallows of deft perception to offer readers a reassuring torch of truth in life's otherwise ink-dark cave of indifference and mediocrity.
