In the meantime, allow me to complain about the weather. Cold, wind, snow showers . . . what month is this supposed to be anyway? I'll be mowing grass in mittens and a down parka.
And then there are my poor dog's digestive woes. Sigh. Someday I'll get enough sleep again.
Weave Magazine has published a review of the most recent edition of The Autumn House Anthology of Contemporary Poetry. The author, Anthony Frame, kindly remarks that "the anthology . . . serves as a useful introduction to a number of poets who may not yet be quite as known [as "Alicia Ostriker, Rita Dove, Dean Young, and Jane Kenyon," etc.] but who certainly should be, such as Dawn Potter and Yona Harvey." This comment is both flattering and depressing. I wonder how Yona Harvey is feeling about it. Here are a couple of her poems for you to read.
