Dreams, memories, reality, and imagination combine to create a work of lyric intensity. The absence of times normal sequence contributes to the dreamlike quality of this work. Unforgettable are the poems dealing with the mothers illness, death, and funeral and the audience waiting breathlessly for Leontyne Price to begin her concert. The authors artistry is particularly apparent in the carefully selected details of family members. Dreaming Underground won the 2003 Naomi Long Madgett Poetry Award.
