At Any Given Second ~ by Paula R Hilton
At Any Given Second contains 47 poems written between 1990 and 2020. Paula R. Hilton’s work explores the immediacy of memory and how our most important relationships define us. She takes to heart the advice she was given by poet, Jeff Oaks, when she was a 22-year-old student in his class at the University of Pittsburgh. He told her “poetry is about survival” which made her understand its permanence and importance and gave her the will to write, and thrive, each day.
