Sibbie O'Sullivan is an award winner writer who works in various genres, though her first love is poetry. LITTLE WHEEL consists of l3 poems read by seven different readers. The poems themselves cover a lot of ground, from Medieval Europe to instances of magical realism in the suburbs. They are linked, but not in an obvious way. The little wheel that turns through our lives moves equally through terror and kindness. But what is this world that allows for such extremes? In these poems, there is always 'another world' someone is going to; the roaches in one poem keep 'their contract with the other world' whenever they appear and disappear along the baseboards. There's also 'the living world' of family life, housecleaning, and ghosts. O'Sullivan's poems about history evoke a world of pain and ignorance we like to think is in the past, but as her time-traveling porno witch Madison reminds us, ' I never left.' O'SULLIVAN's play 'The Body' was performed at the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center in College Park, MD in 2004. Her essay 'Out of the Loop' was a Notable Essay of the Year in Best American Essays of 2000, edited by Robert Atwan. Her poems have appeared in various publications for over 20 years. O'Sullivan teaches literature for University Honors at the University of Maryland, College Park, MD. Her web address is: sibbieosullivan.com.
