really liked it

A beautiful correspondence. The writing is quite engaging - and it's always fun to read someone else's letters (grin). It's made me want to read some of their published work - to continue the vein of the prose and bits of everydayness that they describe so eloquently. I wish we all wrote more letters - real, tear open the envelope, unfold the paper letters.

Rachel Wagner I am really glad that you liked it. It also made me want to read more from both poets- particularly Silko. I really look at it as a fantasy. Maybe someday I will have a great correspondence with a poet! A girl can dream!
