AFTER THE BLUE RUSH
“Garofolo’s work reminds us of the mission of the Romantic poets, while at the same time asking us to both celebrate and confront society’s emotional dyslexia. Her poetry honors life, human relationships, and their relationship with nature through rudimentary and ethereal poetic grooves.”
– Tamar Boyadjian, award-winning poet & translator of the endangered language of Western Armenian
“Reading Gabriella’s work is like an antenna itself to her world: a surrealist
vision entangled in the evocation of gods, spirits, and the most vulnerable
corners of her soul. A spell is cast, a rhythm summoned, a vision revealed.
She says it herself, “present tense makes poems vibrate.”
– Jen Fisher, poet, VorteXity Books
