bookshelves: poetry-everyone-should-read
Read in April, 2009

Rich pulls you into the depth of her sorrow like no one else I know. Beautiful and pure. Like all great poetry she should be read out loud. She was read in a park, in the car and home alone and every time she would bring me to that place that I needed to be. Which is exactly what poetry is for.

I wouldn't suggest reading her on a daily basis. Such a plan would send you down the spiral of depression and hopelessness never to be seen again.

and for the Texan: I don't how anyone could make a poem about an ice cream truck sad but she found a way.

trivialchemy Michelle, I think you should put your Message #2 as the last sentence in your review. Made me laugh aloud.
