Beauty Mark

2013 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Poetry (Adult Nonfiction)

Beauty Mark uses images and subjects drawn from American popular culture to find transcendent meanings in beauty, time, and especially, art—from the beauty mark of Miss Peggy Lee to the flavors in the Cheese-of-the-Month Club. Kevin Prufer writes, “These plainspoken poems are not merely conversational, nor are they in any way simple. Beneath their amiable, glistening surfaces are deep concerns…mortality, those qualities that define art, and our relationship to the divine.”
