If I Go Missing
Poetry by Carol Lynne Knight
Fernwood Press, April 2022

What happens when the ex-wife of an ex-cop, with a penchant for TV detectives, speculates about her own disappearance? In this poetic journey, fictional detectives examine her house, her belongings, her lovers, and her longings. Poem by poem, Carol Lynne Knight mixes imaginary investigations with the intimate, often stark, realities of life as the wife of a street cop in South Florida. If I Go Missing mixes the sensual with procedural detail in a surprising, original new trope, with an introduction by Diane Wakoski.
