By Betteanne Rutten. "Hard Candy", is Rutten's second volume of poetry. "Hard Candy"is a
metaphor for life: delicious, desirable, and often difficult. Rutten's
poems range from the sensuous, refective and profound, such as her poem
addressing the Madid train bombing. These poems are fierce,
honest,straight to the heart work, featuring fresh metaphors that make
one go back to read lines again and again. She is also the author of,
"Lovers and Other Things That Go Bump In the Night.
