Interesting collection of work. Some I found inspiring and some I found tiresome. I really enjoyed Holly Hughes, Karen Finley, and Lenora Champagne's work.

"Speech is the body part of thinking, the voice of the mind. Writing is the blood and mind mixing to speak through the fingers, through the hands."
