Greetings Bloginistas... My New Favorite poet is C.D. Wright, who passed away yesterday, in the morning. I knew of her, but had not read too much of her work.

Sadly, the death of an artist often lends … Continue reading My New Favorite Poet – In Memoriam: C.D. Wright (1949–2016)

My latest new favorite poet is Kathleen Aguero. The below poem (from American Life in Poetry: Column 517) was one of the poems (based upon personal experience) that punched me, hard, in my emotional stomach. It's just beautiful, and actually quite comforting, to think that those who left us are now in a place of … Continue reading My Latest New Favorite Poet: Kathleen Aguero
Greetings Bloginistas! Here's a quick post of a gorgeous poem by someone I had not yet heard of (a truly "New Favorite Poet" for ME, anyway) until reading this poem posted by one of my fave Bloginistas, Biblioklept.
