What a whole new world I'm finding!
Here is what is torture: every day, I open a box from amazon.com or Powell's or half.com (sorry authors & small presses-I'm a grad student with no money to spare) and there's a book that I just dive right into! Today, Marilyn Hacker - Deseseperanto - sounds like a new language - oh but within seconds, I'm hooked. And the torture part - there's Hacker and Mary Oliver and there's a book of ekphraisak poetry and there's Jenny Factor and there's Passing and there's Carol Potter's book and and and, I have to finish HD's Trilogy. I'm sick to death of mythological allusions and spare verse. Enough already! This is the torture.
